MMA – Reassembled, he is in a hurry to get to the title. To get this chance, Josh Emmett wants the “Korean Zombie”.
While not the most talked about competitor in the featherweight category, Josh Emmett is no less formidable. After suffering a very serious knee injury, it was a long way home. However, there it is, Emmett seems ready to take a chance on the title. For this, he offers a duel to Chan Sung Jung, better known in the UFC under the surname of “Korean Zombie”. According to him, the winner will be legitimate to claim a title shot against the king of the category Alexander Volkanovski. Or Holloway, if he emerges as the winner of a potential trilogy.
During an interview for “Hannibal TV”, Emmett discussed his plan to get to the belt. Here’s how he sees it:
“The only person in front of me who comes out of a win, and who doesn’t have an event planned, is Korean Zombie. So it would be great to face him in a title qualifier. Then the winner gets the winner of the trilogy between Volkanovski and Holloway. Chikadze and Kattar face each other soon, so there is no one available for me except Zombie ”.
The opposition between the Korean Zombie and Josh Emmett makes sense. Plus, she would have a great chance to give fans a great time. As a reminder, Emmett comes out of a very nice victory against Dan Ige, at UFC 269, on December 11. For his part, the Korean Zombie narrowly missed a chance for the title by losing to Brian Ortega. Chance of the calendar, it is on this same Dan Ige that Chan Sung Jung bounced back to return to the victory box.
Places are expensive in this UFC featherweight category. If sporting the opposition makes sense, it will also be necessary to achieve an excellent performance to be sure of securing a chance for the title. Giga Chikadze, in particular, appears to be a very big title contender if he wins in his next appearance.
