Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will deliver its third offering on the FUEL TV channel this coming Tues., May 15, 2012, from the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia. In the main event of the evening, Dustin Poirier puts his five-fight win streak on the line against Chan Sung Jung. A featherweight title shot could very well be hanging in the balance.
Poirier is simply focusing on doing what he does but doing it better:
"It's the small things, the finesse. Who's going to go out there and fight like a professional fighter and pick their shots and stay technical. We can both knock each other out, we can both submit each other, and we're both very dangerous; pretty much any position we get put in, we can finish a fight, I think. I'm sure he knows that, I know that about him. It's just going to come down to who is better prepared."
"The Korean Zombie" agrees that the two have similar styles and he'll need to be on his game to continue his climb up the 145-pound ladder:
"We fight in a similar fashion so it's going to be a case of who can do it better. Hopefully I'll be able to pull off another good win. I plan to do all the things that I've prepared to do from the beginning. So it's going to be important to set the pace and stick to my gameplan. I don't want it to turn into a brawl like my fight with Leonard Garcia so I'm going to be looking to implement my gameplan from the very first round."
Maniacs, who 'ya got in this one?
