Chan Sung Jung defeats Dustin Poirier via submission (D'Arce choke) at 1:07 of the 4th round

The bout was as epic as everyone expected, but the Korean Zombie came out on top. After three rounds of amazing and beautiful brutality, Jung used a combination and flying knee to force Poirier into an ill-fated takedown attempt. The Zombie locked up a tight D'Arce choke and put Poirier to sleep at 1:07 of the fourth. Jung won the first two rounds with timely takedowns and plenty of violence, but seemed to fade in the third. Poirier was game all the way and probably won the third, but couldn't keep up the momentum and got choked out.

The action started quickly as expected, with Poirier landing a nice left hand. Jung caught a kick and took it to the ground briefly, but Poirier got up and tried to work against the cage. Poirier landed a nice knee, but got tripped down by Jung. Zombie landed some nice elbows and opened up a cut. Poirier landed a light upkick and managed to sweep to the top position. Jung got to a crouch position against the cage, and got back up. They both landed some big shots for about 20 seconds before Poirier shot for an unsuccessful takedown to close out the first stanza.

Jung once again caught a kick and got a takedown seconds into round two. He rained down some big shots while Poirier briefly looked for a leglock. Zombie continued with the ground and pound, landing a solid right and an elbow. Poirier kicked Jung off and go back up. Jung landed a glancing spinning backfist, then a huge flying knee and another. Poirier came back with a power double, but Jung rolled right through it and somehow ended up in mount with 2 minutes to go. Zombie suddenly jumped out for an armbar, then transitioned to a triangle that was locked up. He elbowed Poirier to the head, then transitioned to another armbar. Poirier rolled out though and ended up on top. Zombie locked up another triangle, but the horn saved him.

Poirier was the aggressor early in the third round, wobbling Zombie slightly with a right. Thr pace slowed slightly, but both men were throwing a fair amount still. Zombie got a body lock and threw Poirier to the ground against the cage, but was quickly reversed and they reset in the center. Poirier landed multiple rights, but Zombie responded with a knee to the body against the cage. Poirier definitely landed more in the round, but Zombie might have landed the harder strikes. Zombie did close out the round with a nice combination.

Jung didn't look any fresher open the fourth round, but he lived up to his Zombie nickname by coming forward and landing a huge combination and a flying knee. Poirier ducked for a takedown but Jung locked on a D'Arce choke on the ground and finally got the tap.
