UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. The Korean Zombie preview
Holloway, 31, who is from Hawaii, has dominated the featherweight division at times. After turning pro in 2010, he quickly rose through the ranks and by June 2017, he became the UFC Featherweight Champion, defeating Jose Aldo by TKO at 4:13 of the third round. He knocked Aldo out in December of that year to defend his title at UFC 218. He then defended his featherweight title two more times before finally losing it to Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 245 in December 2019.
Holloway has since lost two other featherweight title bouts to Volkanovski, but each has been by decision. Despite that, he is still No. 13 in the UFC men's pound-for-pound rankings. He has had plenty of success of late, winning three of his last four bouts. In April, he defeated Arnold Allen by unanimous decision at UFC on ESPN: Holloway vs. Allen.
Sung-Jung, The Korean Zombie, 36, will be out to avenge his April loss to Volkanovski. Sung-Jung had a chance to grab the UFC Featherweight Championship, but lost by TKO in 45 seconds of the fourth round to Volkanovski. Sung-Jung has dropped two of his last three bouts. He defeated Dan Ige by unanimous decision in June 2021, following a unanimous decision loss to Brian Ortega in October 2020.
Sung-Jung began his professional MMA career in June 2007 and won his first nine bouts. He had his first chance at winning the featherweight crown in August 2013, but lost by TKO to Jose Aldo. In 24 matches, Sung-Jung has compiled a 17-7 record, including six wins by knockout, eight by submission and three by decision. You can only see who to pick at UFC Fight Night here.
Top UFC Fight Night predictions
We'll share one of Vithlani's UFC Fight Night predictions here: He is backing Parker Porter (+125) to defeat Junior Tafa (-150) in a battle of heavyweights on the main card.
Porter, 38, is 14-8 as a professional, registering six wins by knockout. In his last bout in May, he defeated Braxton Smith at 2:10 of the first round by TKO at UFC 288. He has won four of his last six matches, including three by submission. He began his professional career in 2007 and won the vacant Reality Fighting Heavyweight Championship in February 2011 with a first-round knockout of Mike Dexter.
Tafa, 26, is a relative newcomer to the sport. He began his professional career in July 2022, winning his first four matches. In January 2023, he signed with UFC and lost his first bout to Muhammad Usman by unanimous decision in April at UFC Fight Night: Pavlovich vs. Blaydes. Of his five matches, he has won four by knockout.
Porter will be looking for revenge in this fight after being knocked out by Junior Tafa's brother Justin, in a recent fight. Porter moves well for a heavyweight, using his lateral foot work and speed advantage to get in and out of range and land combinations," Vithlani told SportsLine. See who else to back here.
