What time is UFC Singapore today? Singapore to U.S. time difference for Max Holloway vs. The Korean Zombie

Two of the most revered MMA fighters face off in their first visit to Singapore for the UFC since June 2022. Former featherweight champion Max Holloway faces Chan Sung Jung, known as The Korean Zombie.

UFC Singapore airs on ESPN+ in the U.S. and takes place in Singapore Indoor Stadium.

It is the latest chance for Holloway to prove he should fight for UFC gold again. The Hawaiian-born fighter won the UFC featherweight title in 2017, beating Jose Aldo. Defending it three times, Holloway then lost the belt to Alexander Volkanovski. Following two more defeats to Volkanovski, the 31-year-old returned to action in April, beating Arnold Allen. 

“Blessed” could end his career now and be considered a Hall of Famer, but the job’s not done as long as Volkanovski still holds gold.

“I do believe I’m a better fighter than Alex Volkanovski,” Holloway told ESPN. “If I didn’t believe I was a better fighter than him, then why am I fighting in the same weight class as the guy? Once you start to accept, ‘This guy might be better than me,’ you don’t belong, and you should retire. Guys don’t understand that. A lot of people are OK with just being OK. If I didn’t think I could still win, what the hell am I doing? I would have gone to another weight class. I would have retired — but I know I’m there.”

Joining the UFC in 2011, The Korean Zombie left the promotion for mandatory military service in South Korea. Since returning in 2017, he is 4-3 but 2-2 in his last four. Volkanovski pulverized the 36-year-old in April 2022, and many were shocked when he accepted the bout against Holloway.

Per Bet MGM, The Korean Zombie is the +525 underdog, while Holloway is the overwhelming -750 favorite. Coach Eddie Cha would have liked his fighter to take on a different opponent, but The Korean Zombie was very open to taking this bout. 

“It doesn’t matter if he’s a 10-1 favorite or an underdog, he’s still going to go out there and do his thing,” Cha told Middle Easy via MMA Junkie. “But I don’t think there’s any pressure on him at all. He has everything to win… More importantly, this is the fight he wanted.

“We all wanted an easier fight for him as he’s kind of going into the tail-end of his career, but he’s always looked up to Max, this is the fight he wanted, and we all want to see it. I said, ‘You’ve earned that right to kind of pick and choose who you want to fight with,’ and I think Max wanted it too. It’ll hopefully be a great matchup.”
