Chan Sung “The Korean Zombie” Jung (Pictured) hardly speaks a lick of English, but he knew exactly what to say after posting an impressive submission victory over Dustin Poirier on Tuesday night – “I want Jose Aldo.”
While the reigning featherweight king has already been issued his next assignment, UFC president Dana White told FUEL TV’s post-fight show that Jung may have catapulted up the 145-pound totem pole with his latest performance.
Hatsu Hioki is pegged by most as the division’s second top dog. However, he declined a scrap against Aldo in order to improve his game prior to entering a title fight.
Hioki now meets Ricardo Lamas at “UFC on FX: Maynard vs. Guida.” It appears even if the 28-year-old reigns supreme on June 22nd, he may have lost his place in line.
Aldo, meanwhile, defends his throne against Erik Koch at UFC 149 on July 21st. The Brazilian is a heavy favorite to retain his crown, so if the Gambling Gods are correct, there could be a Korean Zombie in “Scarface’s” future.
After hearing he might get next dibs at the featherweight belt, Jung flaunted some more of his English vocabulary by stating, “Woo hoo!”
Jung has rattled off three consecutive wins, with all of them ending in spectacular fashion.
