“I was already in the groove of training for Pettis, but unfortunately, he got hurt, so we did have to adjust a few things. They have different styles. But I was already training, and I was already prepared, so just adjusting those final details… I think this fight is a very good fight. He deserves to be there and he’s shown that he deserves to be the contender. Everyone wants to fight for the title, but right now, he deserves it.”
UFC Featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, was originally slated to fight Anthony Pettis tomorrow night in the UFC 163 main event.
An injury mid-camp to the title challenger forced a shift in opponent and now the champ admits that Chang Sung Jung (AKA The Korean Zombie) is deserving of his shot at the title.
