One of the most famous fighters in the UFC, the so-called “Korean zombie,” Chan Sung Jung has asked the UFC to allow his beloved Max to fight Blessed Holloway.
Initially, Holloway was scheduled to fight Yair Rodriguez at UFC Vegas 31st. But when he was wounded during a battle camp, he was forced to leave. Meanwhile, Chan Sung Jung impressed five rounds against Dan Ige for a unanimous victory.
Since then, he has repeatedly called for a fight with Holloway. In a video posted on Korea’s Zombie YouTube channel in Yung, Yung Yair noted that Rodriguez had been inactive for two years, but was still shot in the number one lightweight division.
“Yair hasn’t fought in almost two years, but he’ll fight Max to get him back,” Chan Sung Jung said. “I think it’s all going to happen for some reason? Because of Yair, the UFC knows who I want to fight. Yair has been gone for so long, he still continues to fight the guy in the first place. I lost. I was silent after I was. Brian Ortega, but I made it clear that I would not fight those who were inferior to me. “
Chan Sung Jung calls for an equal fight
Chan Sung Jung’s points are real, now that he’s over a high-level opponent like Ige, his words can stop ringing in his ears. He noted that Jair Rodriguez was free to reject messages from lower-level opponents, preferring to face higher-level fighters.
“Recently, Giga Chikadze called Yair Rodriguez,” Chan Sung Jung said. “But Jair remained silent. The only fighters behind Yair took a higher position than him, and he achieved what he wanted when he planned to fight Max Holloway. I’m not trying too hard, but I want to be given a chance like Jair.”
Chan Sung Jung has a clear look at a potential matchup with Max Holloway as he called him again.
“He doesn’t have the power to punch. But I have the power to punch. I can beat him.”
