UFC on Fuel 3 Results: “The Korean Zombie” chokes out Dustin Poirier

Typically when fans find UFC action on a Tuesday night it’s in “recap” form on UFC Tonight and Ultimate Insider. However, this evening Fuel TV abandoned taped material for live television thanks to UFC on Fuel 3 and what a show it was!

The card was headlined by collision between featherweight contenders Dustin Poirier (12-1) and Chan Sung Jung (12-3). Each entered the bout on a streak of impressive performances and could earn a shot at the divisional title with a win. In the end, Jung exited with the victory after an extremely exciting affair seeing him notch a submission in the fourth frame. The finish marked the first time Poirier had been stopped in his career.

Also scheduled for scraps, Donald Cerrone-Jeremy Stephens did their best to live up to Fight of the Night hype based on their fan-friendly approaches inside the Octagon, though ultimately Cerrone outclassed Stephens in stand-up to earn a decision win, while on the opposite end of the entertainment spectrum Ultimate Fighter winner Amir Sadollah took on Wanderlei Silva student Jorge Lopez in a forgettable co-headliner.

Read below for a complete breakdown of UFC on Fuel 3 winners/losers:

Francisco Rivera def. Alex Soto via Unanimous Decision
Johnny Eduardo def. Jeff Curran via Unanimous Decision
Rafael dos Anjos def. Kamal Shalorus via Submission Round 1 (Rear-Naked Choke)

    Not a huge lineup, but a lot of times these cards are the ones that really over deliver. Hopefully that’s what we get tonight.

    Rivera looked pretty good, but props to Soto for staying in it after getting caught that often. Hopefully Rivera didn’t tire himself out.

    Pretty much the same thing as the first round. Solid chin on Soto, but being able to be punched and kicked in the head repeatedly is not going to win him this fight. Good job by Rivera.

    I don’t know how Soto didn’t get KO’d. That kid is tough. Rivera needs to work a bit more on his finishing ability, but otherwise that was a great fight Rivera.

    Pretty good fights so far. Definitely an eye poke by Curran, but Eduardo got lucky that the ref didn’t dock him a point for trying to stop the fight himself. It would have been a shame if the fight had ended as a draw just because the ref didn’t see the foul.

    Very impressive fight by Rafael dos Anjos. I don’t know how Shalorus didn’t go to sleep after that head kick.

    McKenzie looks like he’s in the best shape I’ve seen him in. But then he got slammed in a whopping 8 seconds.

    McKenzie is taking some nasty shots. It’s not looking good for him so far.

    How in the world did LeVesseur not see that coming? Good job by McKenzie.

    I agree with the judges’ decision, but I can’t believe they gave it to Amir. I thought Lopez would get the nod with his takedowns.

    I was not excited for this main event… but, man, that delivered in a huge way. Non-stop action, both guys dished out their fair share, but Zomie looking more & more impressive with each fight.

    And Cerrone impressed me. I expected a technical gameplan that would allow him to pick up a decision, but not in that dominating of a fashion. He toyed with Stephens, who is no slouch at all, and I guess the reach was a bigger factor than I expected. But a great rebound performance from Cowboy. I’d love to see a rematch with Diaz, with Cowboy coming out with an approach like he did tonight instead of getting way too caught up in the trash talk & drama leading into the Diaz bout. Won’t happen right away obviously, but hopefully sooner than later.

    Rece…I do not get Fuel either, but they also put these Fuel shows on ESPN Deportes (at least here on Long Island they do). So, if you don’t mind listening to it in Spanish…..

    Also, Zombie seriously impressed me.. yet again. If he keeps on improving in between fights at this rate. I can see him being a very legit challenge for Mr. Aldo

    Lawlor
    Pokrajac
    Jabouin
    Stephens
    Lopez
    Jung

    Good night of fights, although I came in at the third round of the Igor fight, ended up going 4 for 6 on my predictions too

    Also did Amir do something to piss off the UFC brass? Dana didn’t tweet about the fight, they didn’t do a post fight interview with him in the cage, or on the post fight show, and they barely even talked about his fight on the post fight show. He use to be their golden boy there for awhile.

    The crowd was booing so loudly, it was probably for the best they cut away.

    Zombie looked impressive despite clearly tiring as the fight wore on. I guess Zombies are immune to the adage, “Fatigue makes a coward of everyone.” He even seemed to have a ground advantage over a guy who trains Jitsu with Tim Credeur. I guess Crazy Tim taught him how not to use his Jiu-Jitsu in fights. Maybe they had Jorge Gurgel do their game-planning. :)

    I thought Amir lost despite the fact that Lopez was dog-tired from the early stages of Round 2. Had Amir kept his distance, I think he would have won legitimately, possibly by some form of stoppage.
