Alexander Volkanovski will defend his UFC men’s featherweight gold for a third time on Saturday night, this time against the Korean Zombie, Chan Sung Jung.

Meanwhile, Chan Sung Jung is 7-3 since his UFC debut back in 2011, with 6 of his 7 wins coming inside the distance. Volkanovski is just eight months removed from a spectacular performance in a decision win against Brian Ortega at UFC 265.

As for Chan Sung Jung, his last UFC appearance was a five round decision win over Dan Ige. Previous to that, Chan Sung Jung lost handedly to Brian Ortega back in 2020, which led to Ortega being given the UFC men’s featherweight title shot before the Korean Zombie. Now, with Ortega failing to deliver against Volkanovski, and a trilogy bout between Max Holloway and Volkanovski having fell through, the chance for UFC golf has been granted to Chan Sung Jung, who will has the opportunity to become the first South Korean MMA fighter to be crowned UFC champion.
