Dustin Poirier vs. Chan Sung Jung Set For Main Event On FX 3

February 10, 2012 12:32 pm by Pedro Carrasco

A featherweight main event between two of the UFC’s hottest prospects has been set for the UFC’s return trip to FX TV on May 15th.

The two fighters took to twitter
earlier this week to talk up a potential matchup and the UFC responded by booking “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung and Dustin Poirier in a main event that is sure to deliver fireworks.

UFC officials just announced the main event as official moments ago.

UFC on FX 3 is set to take place from the Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA on May 15.

Jung has quickly risen to super stardom in the sport. “The Korean Zombie” is currently undefeated in the UFC, most recently taking out former number one-contender Mark Hominick in just 7-seconds. A result which ties the fastest KO in UFC history.

Poirier also holds an undefeated record while fighting for the UFC. With a five fight win streak to his credit and only one-professional loss on his record, “The Diamond” has been in talks for a title shot for some time now. However during last weekend’s UFC 143 event where he took out Max Holloway in the very first round, he stated that he didn’t feel ready for Aldo.
