Since moving to the UFC as part of the WEC merger, Dustin Poirier and Chan-Sung Jung have gone undefeated and separated themselves as two of the featherweight division's top contenders.
At Tuesday's UFC on Fuel TV 3, Poirier and Jung will meet in a bout that could earn the winner a spot in a 145-pound title fight. The fighters will headline the fight card, which will also feature the likes of Amir Sadollah, Jorge Lopez, Donald Cerrone and Jeremy Stephens at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va.
After a 1-1 run as a WEC lightweight, Poirier opted to make a move to featherweight for his UFC debut, in which he shocked then-top contender Josh Grispi with a dominant decision victory. Since then, Poirier has picked up three more victories inside the Octagon, including submission wins in his past two fights.
Meanwhile, Jung entered the UFC having lost three of his past four fights. Despite the downturn in his career, Jung made a big splash in his UFC debut by securing the first twister submission inside the Octagon in a rematch with Leonard Garcia. Then, Jung proceeded to knock out former title contender Mark Hominick in seven seconds.
With both fighters riding the most momentum they have ever had in their careers, let's take a look at whether Poirier or Jung has a better chance of taking a big step toward competing in their first championship fight.
