Video: Max Holloway and Korean Zombie meet in sandy Singapore staredown

Max Holloway and “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung are nearly set to do battle.

The Featherweight division takes center stage when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Kallang, Singapore, this weekend (Sat., Aug. 26, 2023). The former champion, Holloway, looks to regain momentum and get back on a winning streak over his fellow fan-favorite opponent, Jung. For the South Korean legend, Jung, Holloway acts as his first opponent since suffering a tough fourth round technical knockout defeat against the current champion, Alexander Volkanosvki, at UFC 273 in April 2022 (watch highlights).

In UFC Vegas 80’s co-main event, Joe Pyfer looks to continue his meteoric Middleweight rise at the expense of Abdul Razak Alhassan’s expense.
