Glad to see Poirier getting a step up in competition. Should be a great scrap and go a long way towards determining a contender for Aldo.
I'm sorry, which country is the only Superpower on the planet? That would be us. Having an awesome record over in Japan didn't do much for Cro Cop, Thierry, Gegard, or Akiyama. If a fighter hasn't fought in the UFC or gone up against those who had (Fedor and Machida fall into this category) then they're NFL Europe until they step up and prove otherwise.

To be the best, you've got to beat the best, and right now, the UFC! IS! THE BEST! WHOOOOOOOOOO!
Apparently you missed this the first time I posted it, but:
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?
George Roop knocked him out. With a left leg high kick. By which I mean Roop kicked him in the head and he was unconscious. Jung has a chin, but Mark Hunt he ain't (of course, considering the Melvin Manhoef fight, Mark Hunt ain't Mark Hunt anymore either. But you get my meaning!)
And according to what the always reliable Internet tells me, Jung is a blue belt. Dustin is a purple belt. BJJ Belt ranks never lie, the coonass's grapple is better.
the korean zombie me thinks
Yes I know the Zombie has fought elsewhere, and I love his work. It was badass the way he continued to baffle Leonard and all but one of his haymakers the first fight, and then tear him up the second. I actually like him a lot, just not in this match.
I am all about Dustin because of his heart, his tenacity, his grappling, and his local ties.
Local ties dont pay the rent but you gotta support your crowd (unless they are complete imbeciles)!
