Jordan Breen has the scoop:

Sherdog.com has confirmed the signing of standout Korean prospect Chan Sung Jung to a six-fight deal with the Zuffa-owned promotion. The deal was confirmed with Jun Choi, who is the lead agent for Korean Top Team, the biggest entity in Korean MMA.

. . .

According to his representation, Jung's WEC debut may come as soon as April 24 at WEC 48, the promotion's first pay-per-view venture, headlined by Jose Aldo's featherweight title defense against Urijah Faber. The most likely opponent for Jung is said to be Cub Swanson, though bout agreements have not been issued as yet.

Jung cultivated a small yet loyal following within the ranks of MMA fans last year with his scrappy, balls-to-the-wall performances in Sengoku's featherweight grand prix, including a controversial decision loss to eventual tournament champion Masanori Kanehara. His willingness to stand and bang with any opponent - paired with an exciting submission game and indelible nickname - is sure to draw interest as he moves to the WEC's flagship division.
