"Up until the Hominick fight I thought that all of this stuff was really good luck. Now I feel I'm really able to showcase my skills. I just went out there and fought. I think that at the end, it wasn't that technial but I went out there and fought my heart out. If possible, I'd like the title shot within the year."
-- Did Chan Sung Jung earn a featherweight championship fight with his impressive fourth round submission victory over Dustin Poirier in the main event of UFC on FUEL TV 3 last night (Tues., May 15, 2012) in Fairfax, Virginia? It's entirely possible that he did and few will argue if that turns out to be the case. But he tells UFC.com that if he's going to be getting a crack at the 145-pound crown, he would like for it to be before the year is out. Had he demanded as much, it would have been fair, especially after what he was able to do last night to Poirier, a man many thought was already in line for a title shot. Instead, "The Korean Zombie" politely requested his shot come before 2012 is over, if he's granted it to begin with. Surely we can all agree he deserves it but should he stay busy with one more fight or should he wait?
