Although the originally planned fight would’ve seen Max Holloway take on Volkanovski in a rematch for the title, having Chan Sung Jung available is a great replacement for the main event.
Unfortunately for fight fans in the United Kingdom, this is going to be a late one! UFC events usually go into the early hours of the morning, and this is no different.

Volkanovski vs The Korean Zombie Predictions
#6 ranked UFC Welterweight Stephen Thompson gave his prediction for the fight whilst speaking to BJPenn.com: “I got Volkanovski, his cardio, and the way he has just gone through Holloway and Ortega have been impressive. I would love for Zombie to become a UFC champ but I have to go with Volkanovski.”
Ian Garry also gave his opinion on this weekend’s clash, again speaking to BJPenn.com about the Featherweight title showdown: “I think Volkanovski. He’s an animal and absolutely brilliant. He has shown he is elite at everything and I think he dominates Zombie.”
