The first Korean superstar in the UFC, the “Korean Zombie” named Chen Sung Jung, missed his title shot but is still a coveted contender for the elite featherweight division. At UFC Fight Night 225 in Singapore on August 26 at the Indoor Stadium, he will face former dominating champion Max Holloway. Such a duet will definitely give the local public an unforgettable spectacle, but will Chen be able to compete with one of the most dangerous boxers in the league, or will he again have to demonstrate miracles of stamina?
Ecuadorian fighter Marlon Vera, who competes in the bantamweight division of the UFC, went through several media rivals, becoming one of the potential contenders for the title in just a year. Just one setback has pushed him to the fringes of the lineup, and now he has to rebuild his winning streak against Pedro Munoz at UFC 292 on August 20 in Boston. And if for the Brazilian this is a great opportunity to get close to the TOP-5, then Chito has much higher risks - because of the loss, he can completely forget about the title shot. So, the fight promises to be especially hot.
