Jose Aldo: I Will Beat The Korean Zombie

UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo will defend his belt on August 3rd when he faces Chan Sung Jung in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil and spoke this week about stepping into the cage against “The Korean Zombie.

Aldo also touched on respecting his opponents because if they’ve earned a title shot, they’ve earned his respect:

“Any fighter at this level is dangerous. You have to respect them all and train very hard. That is what we have been doing for this fight. Because of that, I think things will go well for this fight.”

“Maybe people don’t give (Jung) the credit he deserves. But the fact he reached this point and is fighting for the belt really means a lot. It means he has to be respected and because of that I will train hard to be ready for him.”

“I do think he fights very wide open. He leaves a lot of opportunities to be struck, so if that is the way he really wants to fight, then that is the way I want to fight as well.”

“I have to be ready to take the fight wherever it may go. Whether that’s five rounds or a long fight, or even if it’s a short fight. I have to be ready for anything that may come up.”

“Of course I will beat the Korean Zombie. I will beat the man.”
