    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Here's a really interesting match up.

    http://blogs.bettor.com/Dustin-Poiri...C-news-a128996


    Dustin Poirier vs. Chang Sung Jung


    A battle between two guys with hard names to spell. Like I said before, KZ is going to be a champion some day and he's going to stomp all over Poirier.

    Thoughts? We have one guy who comes out of the dutch kickboxing + wrestling camp and some guy who apparently doesn't know how to die. I like the idea of the standard MMA fighter fighting someone who fights in an interesting manner. This **** is getting really boring.

    The Diamond is not an easy fight for anyone, but the Korean Zombie is a bigger name than anyone he's gone up against barring Josh Grispi.

    Zombie has KO power, but don't forget Roop put him down hard...I think this is gonna come down to who has the better ground game. Zombie has that twister win, but Dustin is no slouch either (Darce and mounted triangle) plus from what I've seen the Cajun has better offensive wrestling.

    The noob had good standup but was dismantled with ease after [the initial feel out]. Do not forget the Crispi demolition. Josh was on the fast track to title contention. Oops. Someone forgot to tell Dustin.

    The Zombie is good. But not good enough. Hominick screwed up badly, not taking away that impeccable counter, but it wasnt a true showing of that next level. This will be!

    No, think about it. How much can a fighter suck if they don't blow through someone with four fights or less?I bet a truly great fighter like Hall of Famer Randy Couture or two time heavyweight champion Frank Mir would never even break a sweat against some amateur with four fights or less.

    OK So I know that Texas is at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to public education and all that, but you do know that KZ has fought OUTSIDE of the UFC before right? Like there are other MMA organizations outside of the USA. I mean, I know you guys down there in that shithole state think that America is an Island planet where we **** rainbows and piss jelly beans and the rest of the world is some kind of 3rd tier of Yggsdrasil. But dude, have you seen how fucking DOMINANT he is in everything else? How he is IMPOSSIBLE to knock out and how ABSOLUTELY TERRIFYING his grappling is?

    Porierierierieierrrrirer or however the **** you spell his name, is a run of the mill dutch kickboxing american wrestling BJJ guy, it's not like he's got some kind of unique puzzle to solve.

    Poirier is pretty textbook, style-wise. But the textbook style didn't become the textbook style by falling aart when something somewhat "unorthodox" comes along. And honestly KZ isn't THAT unorthodox. He's like an exact blueprint for the template "Asian" fighter, with slightly better chin, and one cool 10th planet submission.

    I get where you're coming from though, squints gotta stick together.

    I hate to admit it, but that was quite funny.

    Anyway, stop being such a fanboy. Listen to Nwp, he's right on this one.

    I am intrigued by this match-up. Both have wins with cool submissions. The Korean Zombie has the best nickname in MMA.
