Dustin Poirier (12-1) will square off with Chan Sung Jung (12-3) aka “The Korean Zombie” at featherweight (145 pounds) in the main event of UFC on FX 3 at Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va. on May 15, UFC officials announced today.

UFC officials today announced the three-round matchup, which takes place after the two fighters verbally jabbed at each other on Twitter.

The 23-year-old Poirier, one of the brightest prospects in the sport, is coming off his fifth consecutive win, a first round submission (triangle armbar) of Max Holloway at UFC 143.   Poirier called out Jung after the win, prompting an ongoing verbal battle between the two fighters online.

Jung’s start will be his first since he scored a stunning seven-second KO over Mark Hominick at UFC 140 in December.   The win, his second straight, evened up Jung’s overall UFC record to 2-2.
