Fairfax, Virginia becomes a Zombie feeding ground, Poirier/KZ headlines UFC on Fuel 3

"The Korean Zombie" Chan Sung Jung takes on Dustin "The Diamond" Poirier in a three-round main event, set for May 15th in Fairfax, VA.

Jung, widely regarded as one of the most exciting fighters in the sport, is coming off the 2nd-fastest KO in UFC history and pulled off the submission of the year for 2011. Poirier is the division's fastest-rising star, and known for his relentless power punching style, but his last two outings have earned him spectacular submission wins. He remains undefeated at featherweight.

Dustin is getting a good deal here. He wanted a few months off to work on his skills and not worry about training for a fight, but a main event spot is a sufficient reward I would think.

Poirier will smash Jung.

PS: not hating on Jung...it's just my belief. Poirier is a beast.

This fight is now for the next FW contender! ... er, unless Frankie folds and pushes them back:

A previously announced featherweight bout between Dustin Poirier (12-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) and Chan Sung Jung (12-3 MMA, 2-0 UFC) will now headline May's UFC on FUEL TV 3 event.

Officials today announced the bout as a five-round main event.

The winner "is expected to emerge as a challenger to the UFC 145-pound title currently held by Brazilian star Jose Aldo," according to the release.

UFC on FUEL TV 3 takes place May 15 at Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va. The event's main card airs live on FUEL TV while preliminary-card fights are expected to stream on Facebook. The UFC recently announced a number of fights for the card, including main-card bouts of lightweights Jeremy Stephens (20-7 MMA, 7-6 UFC) vs. Donald Cerrone (17-4 MMA, 3-1 UFC) and bantamweights Mike Easton (12-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) vs. Yves Jabouin (17-7 MMA, 2-1 UFC).

"We're excited to head back to the Patriot Center again with another great night of fights, including a featherweight main event pitting Dustin Poirier against 'The Korean Zombie,'" UFC president Dana White stated. "Poirier and 'The Korean Zombie' are two of the most exciting fighters in the UFC. This is going to be a fun fight. From top to bottom, I will deliver for the fans in Virginia."

Poirier returns after a UFC 143 victory over octagon newcomer Max Holloway. The win was Poirier's fifth straight and brought his record to 4-0 since dropping to 145 pounds.

Jung fights for the first time since a shocking seven-second knockout win over Mark Hominick at this past December's UFC 140 event. Prior to that, he made his UFC debut and submitted Leonard Garcia with a twister that earned a 2011 World MMA Award.

The latest UFC on FUEL TV 3 card now includes:

Dustin Poirier vs. Chan Sung Jung
Donald Cerrone vs. Jeremy Stephens
Mike Easton vs. Yves Jabouin
Igor Pokrajac vs. Thiago Silva
Tom Lawlor vs. Jason MacDonald
Jorge Lopez vs. Amir Sadollah
T.J. Grant vs. Carlo Prater
Cody McKenzie vs. Aaron Riley
Brad Tavares vs. Dongi Yang
Jeff Curran vs. Johnny Eduardo
Rafael Dos Anjos vs. Kamal Shalorus
Azamat Gashimov vs. Alex Soto

Tickets for the event, which range from $44 to $229, go on sale March 16, though UFC Fight Club members can buy them on March 14.

The UFC first visited Fairfax in January 2010 for UFC Fight Night 20. The event drew 8,078 attendees for a $753,962 gate.
