Korean Zombie on what’s next

During the recent media day, Korean Zombie explained how much fighting against Max Holloway means to him and took the time to talk about his retirement.

He answers if the next match is his last or not. “I’ve wanted to fight Holloway forever,” Jung said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “Whenever I imagine me fighting Holloway, I also expect a slugfest to happen.

Both fighters are going to be worn out to the very bottom, so it’s going to be a very fun fight”. “I respect Max, he’s a living legend. He’s a legend in this division. I’ve fought three legends here in this division: I fought Jose Aldo, I fought (Alexander) Volkanovski.

Jung reveals if he will retire this Saturday: I respect Max, but just because I respect him does not mean I’m going to go easy on him. I expect to win this fight. I’m going to go hard on him. I’m not really sure what’s going to happen, It’s very difficult for a fighter to acknowledge that one’s career has ended.

I’ll have to see how well I fight in the octagon. I’ll have to assess myself on this fight, and then decide what’s going on next”.
