Max Holloway made sure to remind the world he’s still a force to be reckoned with at featherweight.
After losing a third time to Alexander Volkanovski in a lopsided decision back in July 2022, many thought that it might’ve been the end for Holloway among the elite. However, the former UFC champion returned to stop the momentum of Arnold Allen, who was on a 12-fight winning streak and unbeaten in the UFC.
The two fought in the main event of UFC on ESPN 44 this past April. After five rounds of fighting, Holloway defeated Allen in a unanimous decision.

Holloway (24-7 MMA, 20-7 UFC) returns this Saturday in the main event of UFC Fight Night 225, which goes down at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore. He takes on fellow veteran Chan Sung Jung (17-7 MMA, 7-4 UFC).
Holloway is 3-3 in his past six fights, spanning the last three years. His only defeats have come to Volkanovski in championship fights.
“Korean Zombie” last fought in April 2022, when he competed for the UFC’s featherweight title against Volkanovski. Jung lost the fight by fourth-round TKO. He’s 3-2 in his past five fights.
