This could be the final fight of Chan Sung Jung’s UFC career.
Unless Jung somehow shocks the featherweight division with a brilliant performance against former 145-pound titleholder Max Holloway, then we might see “The Korean Zombie” return for more fights in the wake of UFC Singapore.
The 36 year-old Jung is currently a +550 underdog.
“I’m not really sure what’s going to happen,” Jung told reporters at the UFC Singapore media day (via MMA Junkie). “It’s very difficult for a fighter to acknowledge that one’s career has ended. I’ll have to see how well I fight in the Octagon. I’ll have to assess myself on this fight, and then decide what’s going on next.”
Jung (17-7) nearly retired after his Brian Ortega loss at UFC Fight Island 6.
“I respect Max,” Jung continued. “He’s a living legend. He’s a legend in this division. I’ve fought three legends here in this division: I fought Jose Aldo, I fought (Alexander) Volkanovski. I respect Max, but just because I respect him does not mean I’m going to go easy on him. I expect to win this fight. I’m going to go hard on him.”
