Former UFC Featherweight Champion Max Holloway and former title challenger Jung Chan-sung, better known by his ring name The Korean Zombie, are set to clash in a featherweight bout in Singapore on 26th August when they headline UFC on ESPN 52.

The Korean Zombie returns to the UFC stage for the first time since April 2022, when he was also defeated by Volkanovski at UFC 273, losing by TKO.
