By FCF Staff
Chan Sung Jung has added another memorable performance to “The Korean Zombie’s” growing resume, as the featherweight choked out favorite Dustin Poirier in the fourth round of the latest UFC on FUEL TV main event.
Jung surged ahead in rounds one and two by taking Poirier to the mat on several occasions, and punishing the highly regarded fighter from above with strikes.
Although the resilient Poirier rebounded in round three with his stand-up game and appeared to be on the comeback trail, Jung stunned the featherweight early in round four with a pounding upper cut.
As Poirier attempted to counter by shooting in for a takedown, Jung wrapped up a beautifully executed D’arce choke to finish off the thrilling fight.
