"We are similar in terms of striking. Many people think Aldo is superior to me in striking, but I don't think so. The biggest difference is Aldo's power in his striking. My style is weakening my opponent little by little. Aldo does it with one big KO strike."
-- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight title challenger Chan Sung Jung tells UFC.com that he believes his striking is nowhere as deficient as people are making it out to be when compared with his UFC 163 opponent Jose Aldo. "Scarface" is considered to be one of the best strikers in all of mixed martial arts (MMA) and his 13 career (technical) knockout victories prove that to be true. Jung, while respectable on the feet, has won a majority of his fights by submission and it would seem likely that his best chance of upsetting the Brazilian for the 145-pound title on Aug. 3, 2013 would be to take the fight to the ground. That may ultimately be what "The Korean Zombie" plans to do when the cage door closes, but he wants it to be known that if he equals or betters Aldo in the stand up department come fight night, you shouldn't be surprised.
