Two of the top ten featherweights Chan-Sung Jung and Ricardo Lamas will fight one another at UFC 162 on July 6.

Jung, known as "The Korean Zombie", returns after a lengthy absence following shoulder surgery and will be taking part in his first fight since May 2012, where he overcame Dustin Poirier.

Lamas won on his last outing against Erik Koch at the start of the year to record his third straight win over a top ten featherweight. The 30-year-old announced the fight on Twitter, posting: "Looks like I will be fighting a Zombie July 6th in Las Vegas."

With Anderson Silva facing Chris Weidman as the main showing at UFC 162, the battle between Jung and Lamas will almost certainly see the winner have a shot at the featherweight title.
