‘Korean Zombie’ Jeong Chan-seong (36) returns to the Octagon.
UFC President Dana White announced on her social media on the 16th (Korean time), “Two fighters who are loved by fans, Max Holloway and Chansung Jung, will participate in the main event to be held in Singapore on August 26th.”스포츠토토
“Halloway is a former UFC featherweight champion and is currently ranked No. 2. ‘Korean Zombie’, No. 7, is also competing to win the title challenge again,” he explained.
The UFC fight will be held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in August, and the name of the tournament has been decided accordingly as ‘UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. Korean Zombies’.
Chansung Jung had a featherweight title fight against Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 273 in April of last year, a year and two months ago. The result was a 4th round TKO loss.
Afterwards, Chan-sung Jeong suggested retirement, but he put on his gloves again and the confrontation with Chikaze Giga, who had been in a war of words, seemed to come true, but it was canceled due to Chan-sung Jeong’s injury.
Max Holloway, who will be facing this time, is a strong man who has risen to the featherweight championship and made a third defense. He is continuing his excellent career with a record of 24 wins and 7 losses in 31 matches in mixed martial arts, but he swallowed regret by losing both fights against current champion Volkanovski.
The two fighters were scheduled to play the third match last year, but it was canceled due to Holloway’s injury, and Jung Chan-sung took the place. Chan-sung Jung and Holloway are the leading UFC featherweight champions, but there has been no head-to-head match yet. Thus, both fighters were looking for a matchup, and this coming August in Singapore, a historic fist exchange was made.
