UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo puts his belt on the line against Chan Sung Jung (aka the Korean Zombie) at UFC 163 on Saturday night in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
“No matter what people might think, I’m confident in my ability to win,” said Jung after stepping off the scale.
The champion wasn’t lacking for confidence either.
“I feel more confident with the crowd because the push me forward all the time,” said Aldo about fighting in front of his home country fans. “I don’t care what (Korean Zombie) is doing, how he’s training. I can’t be beaten here at home.”
Lyoto Machida and Phil Davis square off in the night’s co-main event in a pivotal light heavyweight bout, the winner making a strong claim for a title shot.
Machida and Davis each stepped on the scale at 205 pounds even.
