Former UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway (USA) openly challenged ‘Korean Zombie’ Chan-sung Jung.
Holloway defeated Arnold Allen (UK) by unanimous decision in the UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. Allen main event held at the T-Mobile Center in Kansas City, Missouri, USA on the 16th (Korean time).
Holloway, whose main specialty is slugfest, solved the game cleverly, focusing on avoidance.
Utilizing a spectacular side step, he slowly took Allen down with jabs and body kicks.
When Alan, who was in the dark of defeat, made a bold charge at the end of the 5th round, he took the down with a counter jab.
At the press conference after the match, Holloway brought up Chan-sung Jeong’s name.
He said, “Chung Chan-sung is the only contemporary player I have not fought in. I heard that a tournament will be held in Australia this year, and Chan-sung Jung wants to fight there if he wants.”
He continued, “I grew up watching Jeong Chan-sung’s matches. I don’t know how I didn’t fight him. He’s a player I really want to fight.” 토토사이트
Currently, Holloway is ranked #2 in the UFC featherweight division, and Chan-Sung Jung is ranked #6.
Jeong Chan-sung has also been demanding a confrontation with Holloway since last year, so the possibility of the two facing each other in the Octagon is higher than ever.
Chansung Jung and Holloway shared the pain even if they did not fight against each other.
He challenged current UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski (Australia) and tasted pain side by side.
Jung Chan-sung lost the title match against Volkanovski in April of last year after failing to use his strength and lost by TKO in the 4th round, and Holloway was beaten mercilessly by Volkanovski in July and lost.
