UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. The Korean Zombie
The UFC is set to make its way to Singapore for an action-packed event. On August 26, the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang will witness the highly anticipated showdown between Max Holloway and Chan Sung Jung, also known as The Korean Zombie. This featherweight clash promises to be a thrilling battle for divisional supremacy.
Holloway, with a record of 24-7, has established himself as one of the top fighters in the featherweight division. Although he suffered a convincing defeat in his trilogy fight against reigning champion Alexander Volkanovski, Holloway’s determination remains unwavering. He is determined to reclaim his position at the top of the 145 lbs division. Following a decisive victory over rising contender Arnold Allen in April 2023, Holloway is eager to overcome The Korean Zombie and inch closer to another shot at the title.
Meanwhile, Chan Sung Jung, with a record of 17-7, has faced some setbacks in his career. The South Korean fighter had to put his fighting career on hold for three years to fulfill his mandatory military service. However, he is still regarded as one of the most skilled strikers in the division. Returning to the octagon for the first time since his TKO loss to Alexander Volkanovski in April 2022, The Korean Zombie is determined to prove himself once again. A victory on August 26 will bring him closer to a potential title shot.
The UFC Fight Night card on August 26 will showcase several exciting matchups. In the co-main event, Anthony Smith, ranked eighth in the light heavyweight division, will face off against Ryan Spann. This rematch follows their September 2021 bout, which Smith won via submission. However, Spann is eager to redeem himself and should not be underestimated.
Georgian powerhouse Giga Chikadze will also make his long-awaited return to the octagon after 18 months away from competition. Coming off a unanimous decision loss to Calvin Kattar, Chikadze aims to bounce back with a victory over veteran fighter Alex Caceres.
Additionally, Erin Blanchfield and Taila Santos, both vying for a shot at the flyweight title, will battle it out to climb the ranks in their division.
The prelims for UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. The Korean Zombie will kick off at 5 PM SGT / 5 AM ET, followed by the main card. Indian fans can catch the main card live from 5:30 PM IST.
