Choi Seung-woo, who knows ‘Chan-sung Jeong’s participation = Seung-ri’ officially, “I just need to do well”

There is a pleasant formula for two Korean fighters active in the U.S. mixed martial arts organization UFC. The person involved, Choi “Sting” Seung-woo (30), also knows.

Choi Seung-woo will face Jarno Erens (28, Netherlands) in the undercard featherweight (65.8kg) match of ‘UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. Korean Zombie’ held at Singapore Indoor Stadium on the 26th.

Choi Seung-woo, who lost 3 matches in a row, signed a new contract with the UFC thanks to his hot fighting style. He recently said through this magazine, “I renewed my contract for 4 games. I have to do well in the future,” he said. As hard as it was, it was an opportunity to look back and put my mind down. Rather than overcoming it by force, I put my mind down once and then I was able to afford it.”

Desperate for victory, Choi Seung-woo went to the main event of the tournament, Jeong Chan-seong (36). At Seungwoo Choi’s request, the two conducted joint training at the 2nd Korean Zombie MMA shop located in Hwaseong, Gyeonggi Province. Choi Seung-woo said, “Just training in the same space as a world-class player gave me a lot of strength.” He also looked at the strategy from time to time and took good care of the (Korean Zombie) team members.”

This tournament is important for both of them for different reasons. Chan-sung Jeong, who is facing Max Holloway (USA), who is ranked number one in the featherweight division, is highly likely to win the championship again if he wins this fight. Choi Seung-woo needs to show his UFC-level skills and solidify his position again.메이저사이트

There is an interesting formula to expect the ‘win together’ of the two who set foot on Singaporean land with the goal of victory. Previously, Choi Seung-woo and Jung Chan-sung had competed in the same tournament twice. They both won the Octagon on the same day. In the 2019 Busan event, Choi Seung-woo defeated Suman Mokhtarian (Australia), and Jeong Chan-seong, who took part in the main event that day, beat Frankie Edgar (USA). In October 2021, Seungwoo Choi overpowered Julian Erosa (USA), followed by Chansung Jung defeating Dan Ige (USA).

Choi Seung-woo said, “Even if we don’t have to talk to each other, of course we hope for (accompanied) victory.” I feel good this time too, so I think Chansung hyung will win. I think I can win by doing well,” he laughed.

Her opponent, Erens, is a kickboxer. A hot strike is expected, but Choi Seung-woo said, “The opponent may prepare for wrestling, so I am thinking about that part as well. I don’t think I’ll avoid it when it comes to that situation (ground),” he said.
