Max Holloway secures headline spot against The Korean Zombie for UFC’s comeback in Singapore

In the realm of combat sports, Max Holloway is known for turning his desires into reality. The former featherweight champion has successfully secured a main event showdown against The Korean Zombie at the highly anticipated UFC event in Singapore, scheduled for August 26.

This thrilling matchup was officially announced by UFC officials on Thursday, igniting the excitement of fight fans worldwide.

Holloway, following his remarkable victory over Arnold Allen at UFC Kansas City in April, wasted no time in expressing his interest to face Jung. Demonstrating his exceptional skills, Holloway has secured three wins in his last four fights, triumphing over notable opponents such as Calvin Kattar and Yair Rodriguez. His only defeat during this period came in a trilogy fight against the reigning featherweight champion, Alexander Volkanovski.

Meanwhile, The Korean Zombie, also known as Chan Sung Jung, will be making his long-awaited return to the octagon since suffering a fourth-round knockout loss to Volkanovski in April 2022, in his pursuit of the 145-pound championship. In his previous five fights, the Korean Zombie has maintained an impressive record of 3-2, securing victories against renowned fighters like Renato Moicano, Frankie Edgar, and Dan Ige. His sole defeat came at the hands of fellow featherweight contender Brian Ortega.

The headline clash between Holloway and The Korean Zombie will mark the UFC’s triumphant return to Singapore, a destination that has not witnessed an event of this magnitude since UFC 275. During that momentous occasion, Jiri Prochazka claimed the light heavyweight title by defeating Glover Teixeira. Fight enthusiasts eagerly await the return of UFC action to Singapore, anticipating another electrifying night of world-class mixed martial arts.
