UFC Singapore Live Updates: What's on the Line Here?
It seems like a win here will be enough for Max to get a fourth crack at Volkanovski. Seldom do fighters get rematches, let alone a fourth fight after dropping three. Holloway is in a very odd situation, though. If he gets the nod against Zombie, then he'll have proved that he can beat anyone in the division except for the champion. Yet.
The Korean Zombie is using this fight to assess where he's at in his career. If he can get the huge upset win, then it'll probably be another top five opponent before he can call for a title shot. We need to keep in mind that Ilia Topuria is the rightful next contender after his demolition of Josh Emmett.

Zombie will stay flat footed and then counter with huge strikes.
This was a very close round, but it seems the former champ won it with his boxing from range.
Round 2: A furious start to round two as ‘Blessed' drops Jung with a straight right and he attacks with a D'Arce choke. This was as close as a choke can get without putting one to sleep. Max abandons the submission and we return to the feet. Holloway had the much bigger moment, but Zombie is still in here.
Round 3: The Korean Zombie came out in this round trying to slug it out and trade his technique for power. Holloway accepted the brawl, as he does, and lands right hand that puts Zombie flat on his face. Just 23-seconds into the third round, Holloway scored a finish!
