Max Holloway lauds Chan Sung Jung as a legendary opponent in his momentous final bout

Max Holloway praises "The Korean Zombie" after their fight, calling him a legend and expressing respect for his career.

Max Holloway had nothing but praise for Chan Sung Jung, also known as 'The Korean Zombie,' after their recent fight at UFC Fight Night 225. Despite only being opponents in the cage for a short period of time, Holloway expressed his respect for Jung, who announced his retirement from professional MMA following his knockout loss to Holloway.

During the post-fight press conference, Holloway referred to Jung as a legend and admired his tenacity in the fight. Holloway mentioned how he thought he had Jung finished in the second round, but to his surprise, Jung kept coming back. Holloway described him as a zombie, constantly pushing forward. Holloway also acknowledged Jung's ability to quickly recover after being knocked down in the third round. Holloway's admiration for Jung stems from his willingness to always fight until the end, never wanting to give up or back down.

Holloway felt honored to be Jung's last opponent and recognized that the fight didn't go the way Jung or his fans had hoped. However, Holloway respected Jung's decision to face him and saw it as a testament to Jung's legendary status. Holloway acknowledged Jung's popularity among fans and attributed it to his bravery and never-say-die attitude.

With this victory, Holloway's recent record stands at 4 wins and 1 loss in his last five fights, and 5 wins and 3 losses in his last eight. His only losses in this period have come against UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski in title fights.

Despite being 0-3 against Volkanovski, Holloway remains determined and has his sights set on a fourth fight with him. Holloway's ultimate goal is to be undeniable, to prove himself as a force to be reckoned with in the division. He wants to keep reminding everyone of his capabilities and plans to stay in the sport for a long time.

At just 31 years old, Holloway feels that he still has a lot to offer and believes that people may forget his age due to his long tenure in the UFC. He reassures his fans that he isn't going anywhere and that they should get used to seeing him in action.
