Alexander Volkanovski and Chan Sung Jung

Featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski (23-1 MMA, 10-0 UFC) puts his title on the line for the third time when he takes on “The Korean Zombie,” Chan Sung Jung (17-6 MMA, 7-3 UFC). Jung stepped in when former champion Max Holloway had to pull out of his trilogy fight against Volkanovski.

Volkanovski beat Holloway with a unanimous decision to win the belt, then defended it in a split decision rematch with him. Most recently, he outworked Brian Ortega to defend the strap. Jung fought Jose Aldo for the title in 2013, but lost by fourth-round TKO. He has gone 4-2 since then with four post-fight bonus awards.
