Following his exciting victory over Dustin Poirier Tuesday day night, Chan Sung Jung will face off with the winner of the featherweight title fight between champion Jose Aldo and Erik Koch at UFC 149.
While it was clear Dustin Poirier would get a title shot if he won Tuesday night, it was not clear Jung would receive the same until UFC President Dana White made it clear he would.
White was not there to tell Jung in person since he was at home sick, but they did inform Jung during the post-fight conference. An excited Jung replied with “WooHoo!”
It is unclear when the bout will take place with Koch and Aldo set to face off July 21 but it will likely occur sometime this fall.
