"I doubt that they'll make that match up right now, but if they do I think I'd be ready for it. I'm guessing that the matchmakers will give me at least one fight and if I win that then maybe I'll be in line for a title shot, but that's up to the UFC to decide. But, whenever I get the shot, I'll be ready. I think I've improved my game overall and I keep trying to improve as an all around fighter ... I definitely want to get back to train with Team Alpha Male again, but at this point I don't know when that will be. The training at Korean Top Team is top notch, so I know I'm getting great training here, but yes, when the time and situation permit I would like to go back and train some more with Urijah and the guys."
Fresh off a first round drubbing of top 145-pound contender Mark Hominick, Chan Sung Jung tells Bloody Elbow he's ready for a fight against division champion Jose Aldo -- just as soon as the UFC is ready to give it to him. "The Korean Zombie" (12-3) had a rocky start under the ZUFFA banner, losing back-to-back fights against Leonard Garcia and George Roop, but made an adjustment to his gameplan and quickly fired off two wins in a row, avenging his previous loss to "Bad Boy" in the process. Did you see anything in either of those victories that would indicate he's "ready" for a shot at "Junior?" Or is he putting the cart before the hearse?
