Dustin Poirier may have been headed into a title showdown with Jose Aldo at UFC 149 when the UFC had to shuffle its summer roster recently, but he already had plans. Those plans include headlining Tuesday’s UFC on Fuel TV 3 event in a potential barnburner with Chan Sung Jung (aka “The Korean Zombie”).
Poirier and Zombie head up the six-bout main card on Fuel TV, which airs on the action sports at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT.
The UFC on Friday confirmed that the entire preliminary card, featuring six more bouts, will stream live on the UFC’s Facebook page beginning at approximately 5:30 p.m. ET / 2:30 p.m. PT.
