A key featherweight matchup with real title implications is set for May 15, as Dustin Poirier (12-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) meets Chan Sung Jung (12-3 MMA, 2-0 UFC) in the headlining bout of UFC on FX 3.

UFC officials today announced the three-round matchup, which takes place after the two fighters verbally jabbed at each other on Twitter.

As previously reported, UFC on FX 3 takes play May 15 at Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va. The event's main card airs live on FX, and FUEL TV is expected to air the preliminary card.

.@KoreanZombieMMA Trust me you don't want this... I will expose you.

Should be fun. Poirier's probably right, but I'll have my Zombie colors on anyway.

Poirier is gonna maul him, it probably goes to decision but It'll probably be one sided.

I wanted this fight, awesome!

Poirier wins but Jung shouldn't be counted out. He was counted out in the Hominick fight and we all saw what happened there

Sweet matchup! Big fan of both fighters. No matter who wins, this is going to be a sick fight. Definitely an awesome choice for an FX card headliner

Can KZ prove the Hominick massacre was not a fluke? Will Dustin Poirier continue his win streak on Jung's behalf?

No doubt! One thing is for sure. The winner should be in line for a title shot. And I'm pumped to see either guy fight Aldo.

This might be a good fight...but it shouldn't be a headliner. I hate to see the rest of the card.

Hominick was stupid and left his chin exposed after a wild left hook. had he been smart, Hominick had that fight easily

Poirier wins this easily

koreanZOMBIEEEE!!!! FTMFW!..Poirier tends to get lazy or passive, w/e, and slows down..he's gona look to stand with KZ, but he'll be in trouble by the time he realize that standin with KZ was a mistake..i'll even avatar bet this mAN!

He got KO'd in seconds Bubbs. You're being a good Canadian, but there's no way to say he would have won when he got blasted before either guy had 1 drop of sweat form. Does the same go for Goulet/Ludwig?

Both guys will bring it for sure. I give the edge to Poirier in this one but i wouldnt be surprised if KZ walked away with a victory.

Poirier is used to having a huge reach advantage but in this fight his limbs aren't as long, and in his last fight he showed that when people can strike on the outside with him he tends to fall back onto grappling. I'm leaning Zombie.

I've heard conflicting reports of whether this will headline Fuel TV 3 or FX 3
