The Korean Zombie vs Jose Aldo Odds

Chan Sung Jung, aka "The Korean Zombie", is one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC, but does he have what it takes to stop one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the world in Jose Aldo?

Chan Sung Jung vs Jose Aldo for the UFC Featherweight title is set to headline UFC 163 in the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Saturday, August 3rd.

The original main event for this card was supposed to be Anthony Pettis vs Jose Aldo, but Pettis was forced to pull himself from the card due to an injury. The UFC decided to give the "Korean Zombie" the shot at the title, as he is currently on a three fight winning streak that has produced a total of four fight bonuses. Sung Jung's fight against Dustin Poirier was named Fight of the Year in 2012.

Jose Aldo, on the other hand, is currently in the midst of a long winning streak that extends all the way back to November of 2005. Aldo has successfully defended his UFC Featherweight title four times in a row, with wins over Frankie Edgar, Chad Mendes, Kenny Florian and Mark Hominick.
