The UFC Fight Night Singapore card is live now! It’s time to see if Chan Sung Jung aka “The Korean Zombie” can defeat former featherweight champion and Number 1 contender Max “Blessed” Holloway. Both men are on record as having wanted this UFC fight for quite some time and now the promotion has finally granted their wish. We might be watching through our hands, but we’ll be right here watching.

Also on tonight’s card is a what is very likely a title eliminator bout between flyweight standouts Erin Blanchfield and Taila Santos. Blanchfield boasts an 11-1 record with her most recent UFC fight being a nasty rear-naked choke of Jessica Andrade. Santos has a 10-3 record with her last UFC fight being a closely contested fight with Valentina Shevchenko—a fight many thought she won.

Giga Chikadze will also be making his long-awaited return to action against the ever-evolving veteran, Alex Caceres. Chikadze has been out of action since January of 2022 when he lost a unanimous decision to Calvin Kattar in an exciting bout that won UFC Fight of the Night honors. Caceres is on a two-fight win streak with his most recent win being a unanimous decision over Daniel Pineda—also a contest that won UFC Fight of the Night honors.

It’s not overly loaded but it’s certainly not the watered down fodder we mostly get from the dreaded UFC Apex cards either. If not for the ungodly hour, it would be a great UFC fight card. But regardless of the hour, we’ll be here watching so you won’t have to. That’s how much we love you!
