By Roberto Mattos:
Remember this date. Well, more specifically, remember 28 days from this date (see what I did there?). On May 15th Dustin “the Diamond” Poirier will take on Chan Sung Jung “the Korean Zombie” in Fairfax, Virginia on UFC on Fuel TV 3.

The Diamond is 4 -0 since the WEC/UFC fusion and has an impressive 12-1 record overall. Only two of those wins actually went the distance. He’s the subject of the documentary “Fightville”, which takes a look at the MMA scene in southern Louisiana.

Poirier took some time out to share his thoughts on the fight and to give us a sneak peek at his less-than-orthodox training routine in preparation for the Korean Zombie.

“He’s going to bring the best out of me and I’m prepared for that. I want that battle. I want to fight and I want to bleed and I want to learn about myself.
“When I close my eyes I can almost smell it and feel it… and I know it’s coming.”

We’ll see if this new training regime will pay off for the Diamond. I just hope he remembers the first rule of Zombieland – Cardio.
