Former UFC champ Holloway demands confrontation with Jung Chan-sung… “I really want to fight”

Former UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway (31, USA) defeated Arnold Allen (29, England) and demanded a match with ‘Korean Zombie’ Chan-sung Jeong (36).

Holloway defeated Allen by unanimous decision in the main event of ‘UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs Allen’ held at the T-Mobile Center in Kansas City, Missouri, USA on the 16th (Korean time).

Holloway, whose main specialty is bold slugfest, came out with a different game plan than before. Holloway attacked Allen with jabs and body kicks, using a brisk side step. Alan, who had little experience with Holloway’s unexpected strategy, was taken aback.

Feeling defeated, Allen made a bold rush in the last 5 rounds, but instead was hit with a counter jab and allowed a down. In the end, after the fifth round, Holloway won by decision.

In an interview after the fight, Holloway joked, “I tried not to get hit, but Allen hit me like a truck. I got hit on the last round and got bruises. It put my modeling career in jeopardy.”

Holloway said, “Chan-Sung Jung is the only contemporary I have not fought. I don’t know when exactly, but I know the tournament will be held in Australia this year. If Chan-Sung Chung wants, he can fight there.”

He added, “I grew up watching Chansung Jung’s fights. I don’t know how I haven’t fought him until now. He is one of the players I really want to fight.”

Currently, Holloway is ranked #2 in the UFC featherweight rankings, and Chan-Sung Jung is #6.

Since last year, Jung Chan-sung has been demanding a match against his usual favorite fighter, Holloway. With Holloway responding, the possibility of a match between the two increased.

Jung Chan-sung is the best fighter in Korea who has challenged for the UFC featherweight title twice. He challenged and defeated Jose Aldo (Brazil) at UFC 163 in 2014 and Alexander Volkanovski (Australia) at UFC 273 last year.

He debuted on the professional stage in 2007 and has a record of 17 wins and 7 losses (UFC 7 wins and 4 losses). He is called the ‘Korean zombie’ because he continues to fight, advancing endlessly even after taking damage.
