UFC 162: Chan Sung Jung Not Happy With Anthony Pettis

UFC 162: Chan Sung Jung Not Happy With Anthony Pettis

When Chan Sung Jung locked in the “Submission of the Year” by many over Dustin Poirier last May, he felt well on his way to contending for the UFC featherweight title.

However, injuries and the decision by Frankie Edgar to enter into the division left Jung on the outside looking in at the title worn by Jose Aldo.

Now, as “The Korean Zombie” prepares to return to action in July against Ricardo Lamas at UFC 162, he is left looking at another “outsider” taking a crack at Aldo, as Anthony Pettis will meet the champ in August.

“I feel kind of like Pettis cut in line,” said Jung on BJPENN.com recently. “I disagree with the choice. It’s just that Pettis hasn’t really earned a place in the division yet. I think that Lamas, myself or even some other guys should’ve gotten the title shot before Pettis.”

Pettis made it known that he was willing to drop down from lightweight if it meant a quicker path to a title match. The Aldo-Pettis bout is set for UFC 163 from Brazil.

    I’m reserving my anger at Pettis until after the fight. If Aldo/Pettis isn’t a slobberknocker, slap/bang contender for Fight of the Year, then I will be pissed off that he robbed us of Pettis/Hendo II.
