Very rarely does a fighter face a mirror image of himself in the Octagon, but that’s exactly how Chan Sung Jung (aka The Korean Zombie) and Dustin Poirier feel heading into their main event showdown at UFC on Fuel TV 3 on Tuesday night in Fairfax, Va.
Both are exciting to watch. Both possess a knockout punch. Both can submit from any angle.
“We can both knock each other out,” said Poirier in a recent interview. “We’re both very dangerous from any position you put us in.”
That should make for an exciting fight for the fans that tune in, but where does it leave Jung and Poirier when it comes down to getting the upper hand?
“We fight in a similar fashion, so it’s going to be a case of who can do it better,” said Jung.
