"I doubt that they'll make that match up right now, but if they do I think I'd be ready for it," Jung mused. "I'm guessing that the matchmakers will give me at least one fight and if I win that then maybe I'll be in line for a title shot, but that's up to the UFC to decide. But, whenever I get the shot, I'll be ready.
The Korean talent now joins Chad Mendes and Hatsu Hioki as the front-running threats to Jose Aldo's legacy, and Jung shared his thoughts on how he matches up with the champ and top contenders. "They're all tough fighters. There are no easy match ups in the UFC. They all pose their own unique challenges and strong points, so I wouldn't really call any of them better or worse match ups."
Considering his ascension in the ranks in such a short time, the fact that the burgeoning featherweight is just twenty-four years old holds much promise for the future. I asked Jung what aspect he felt he'd improved the most, what areas he was still working on and whether another trip to Team Alpha Male to train with Urijah Faber was on the horizon.
"I think I've improved my game overall and I keep trying to improve as an all around fighter. This is mixed martial arts, so it's important to work on all facets of your game, whether it's striking, wrestling, Jiu-Jitsu, whatever. I'm always trying to get better at everything," he said. "I definitely want to get back to train with Team Alpha Male again, but at this point I don't know when that will be. The training at Korean Top Team is top notch, so I know I'm getting great training here, but yes, when the time and situation permit I would like to go back and train some more with Urijah and the guys."
