The Korean Zombie speaks: I want Jose Aldo, I will end his reign as a ChampionPosted on June 29, 2012, 05:27 PM by Mike Searson
I want Jose Aldo. I will end his reign as a Champion.— Chan Sung Jung (@KoreanZombieMMA) June 29, 2012
A bold statement, to be sure. Jung most recently competed at UFC on FUEL TV 3 where he defeated Dustin Poirier via D'arce choke in perhaps one of the best fights of the year at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia. UFC President Dana White initially suggested Jung was potentially in the running for a title shot against Aldo, but later stated he was the clear cut top contender.
Aldo,however, was originally scheduled to face Erik Koch at UFC 149 in Calgary, Canada, but was forced to withdraw due to injury and is expected to face Koch at an undetermined date in the future.
The question is, does Jung deserve a title shot, right now? Does he jump over Koch to get to Aldo based on the strength of his FUEL TV performance or should he wait and fight the winner of Aldo vs. Koch?
