UFC 163 Preview: Jose Aldo vs. Korean Zombie Head-to-Toe Breakdown
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Jose Aldo will defend his featherweight crown against Chan Sung Jung, better known to many as The Korean Zombie, this coming Saturday in Brazil at UFC 163.

Aldo (22-1) is currently undefeated in his last 15 bouts. This will be his eighth straight title fight, and his fifth defense of the UFC Featherweight Championship.

The Korean Zombie (13-3) gets the title shot by virtue of an injury to Anthony Pettis. Jung has won three straight fights in the Octagon, and all have been finishes. That includes a 2011 Submission of the Year contender and a 2012 Fight of the Year contender with Dustin Poirier.

The featherweight tilt will headline the card, and there will be several interested parties watching. The dominant No. 3-ranked pound-for-pound great will seek to make a statement that he owns the division, while the challenger will try to stun the hostile crowd with a win.

This is your UFC 163 head-to-toe preview of the featherweight championship bout.
