Chan Sung Jung (aka The Korean Zombie) and Dustin Poirier are two of the top featherweight fighters in the world. They are slated to square off in the main event of UFC on Fuel TV 3 on Tuesday night at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va.
First, they and the other UFC on Fuel TV 3 fighters had to step on the scales to make their bouts official.
All 12 fighters made weight without issue.
Jung and Poirier squared off with little fan fair, showing much respect for each other. There was, however, some tension between Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Jeremy Stephens.
Stephens began talking to Cerrone as soon as they squared off for their photo opp, while Cerrone just glared back at him with an evil smile on his face.
