In a heartfelt statement, Chan Sung Jung, also known as 'The Korean Zombie', has addressed his knockout loss to Max Holloway and announced his retirement from MMA. The highly anticipated headliner of UFC Singapore saw Jung aiming to bounce back after his TKO defeat to Alexander Volkanovski last year. Prior to that, he had secured a victory over Dan Ige.

On the other hand, Max Holloway returned to the Octagon following his unanimous decision win against Arnold Allen. This win had put him back on the winning track after a loss to Alex Volkanovski. The main event proved to be an exhilarating slugfest, with Holloway landing significant blows on Jung in the opening rounds. However, true to his resilient nature, Jung continued to fight back. Unfortunately, in the third round, Holloway delivered a perfectly timed right hand that ended the fight.

The official result was a KO victory for Max Holloway at 0:23 of the third round. Immediately after the fight, Chan Sung Jung laid down his gloves and announced his retirement from MMA. Reflecting on his knockout loss and subsequent retirement, 'TKZ' took to social media to express his thoughts.

In his statement, Jung acknowledged that while he may not have achieved everything he desired, he is content with what he has accomplished. He expressed gratitude for the love and support he has received and emphasized that he no longer wishes to be evaluated or compared to others. Jung admitted to feeling lonely, regretful, and scared about the future, but vowed to give his best in whatever he chooses to pursue. He thanked his fans, Dana White, UFC, and his last opponent, Max Holloway, and expressed hope for a future reunion.

With a final record of 17-8, Chan Sung Jung concludes his MMA career.
