‘Korean Zombie’ Jeong Chan-seong (36) received a suggestion about what it would be like to have his last UFC fight with Paddy Pimblet (28), who boasts the most popular British mixed martial arts.
American media ‘Heavy Sports’, citing the Hong Kong daily newspaper ‘South China Morning Post’ columnist’s claim, Chan-sung Jung moved up from featherweight (-66kg) to lightweight (-70kg) and looked forward to a retirement fight against Pimblet.
It was also introduced that it would be good for both fighters if Jeong Chan-sung and Pimblet face off in the UFC Fight Night main event or the numbering competition co-main event.
Based on the United States, ‘UFC Fight Night’ is broadcast live through the sports channel ESPN+, and the numbering is a pay-per-view (PPV) method for a specific program. Pimblet-Chansung Jung is the most important matchup of a UFC free broadcast competition, or the second most important matchup in a paid event.
Jung Chan-sung rewrote the history of domestic mixed martial arts with UFC featherweight title fights in 2013 and 2022. After 2012, 9 consecutive main event fights in the UFC are also difficult achievements for Koreans to reestablish. 먹튀검증
Pimblet is ▲ 2015 ‘Full Contact Contender’ featherweight champion ▲ 2016 ‘Cage Warriors’ featherweight champion ▲ 2018 ‘Kizer Warriors’ lightweight title fight, etc. In the UFC, which entered the British stage as a stepping stone, debuted in 2021 and won four consecutive victories.
Chan-seong Jeong is superior in mixed martial arts career, but Pimblet is better in popularity. Pimblet has a total of 351.5 million SNS subscribers, which is 2.45 times that of Jeong Chan-sung (143.3 million).
Currently, the best fighter in British mixed martial arts is UFC welterweight (-77kg) champion Leon Edwards (32). However, the number of SNS subscribers is 137.9 million, which is 39.2% of Pimblet.
Jung Chan-sung announced his intention to retire from mixed martial arts after losing the featherweight title last year. This is why the ‘South China Morning Post’ and ‘Heavy Sports’ mention Chan-sung Jung’s last UFC fight.
