Max Holloway and The Korean Zombie, also known as Chan Sung Jung, have set the stage for an epic clash.
On Friday morning in Singapore, these two seasoned featherweights successfully weighed in for their impending five-round main event showdown at UFC Singapore. Both Holloway and Zombie managed to hit the mark at 146 pounds, right on target for a non-title featherweight fight. The two fighters are now on a collision course, with the main event scheduled for Saturday at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore.
At present, Max Holloway (24-7), holding the No. 2 spot in MMA Hook’s featherweight global rankings, is on a mission. Now 31 years old, this former UFC featherweight king is aiming for his second win in a row, after besting Arnold Allen in a gritty battle last April. Since 2014, Holloway’s featherweight record stands at 17-3, with all three losses being handed to him by UFC champion Alexander Volkanovski.
On the other side, Zombie (17-7), who ranks 11th in the world in MMA Hook’s featherweight category, is renowned as a crowd-pleaser due to his thrilling fighting style. The 36-year-old veteran has hinted that Saturday’s bout might be his last dance in the ring. A two-time UFC title aspirant, Zombie has been on a break since a crushing defeat to Volkanovski in a title attempt in April 2022.
In the evening’s co-feature, Anthony Smith and Ryan Spann successfully weighed in for their light heavyweight rematch. Smith registered 205.5 pounds on the scale, while Spann weighed in at a neat 205 pounds.
