Park Jun-yong ‘looking for four straight wins’ to take centre stage ahead of ‘female fighting legend’

Jun Yong Park takes the final step in the journey of the ‘most dominant woman in women’s MMA.

On 16 November, Park will face Albert Durayev in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night: Holm vs. Bueno Silva, which precedes the main event.

The co-main event is the second most important fight of the tournament, and Park’s three-fight winning streak has put him on the UFC’s radar.

“I’m grateful, but I prefer to fight fast,” Park said before the fight, and as it turns out, he’ll get his wish: to fight early and finish quickly.

On the 15th, the weigh-in went smoothly for both fighters. Both fighters passed the middleweight (83.9kg) weigh-ins at 186lbs and Durayev at 185lbs.

“I think his wrestling and ground game is a little bit better, and I think my standing striking is better. “I think it’s going to be a hard-fought battle for all three rounds,” he said, adding, “The key to this fight will be if we can draw each other into our comfort zones.

Meanwhile, in the main event that follows, Holly Holm (41, USA), who has been called the GOAT (greatest athlete of all time) of women’s combat sports, will make her final title run.

Holm, ranked No. 3 in the UFC’s bantamweight division (61.2kg), weighed in at 135.5 pounds (61.5kg) at UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, on Friday (15).

He will compete against No. 10 Myra Bueno Silva (31, Brazil) in the main event of “UFC Fight Night: Home vs. Bueno Silva” on 16 November. His opponent, Silva, also weighed in at 136 lbs.

Holm is considered one of the GOATs in women’s combat sports, having won championships in both boxing and mixed martial arts (MMA). She has defended her titles 16 times in three boxing divisions. In 2015, she defeated Ronda Rousey (36, USA) to become the UFC women’s bantamweight champion. She was also an amateur kickboxing champion. She”s still going strong at a ripe old age.

This might be her last chance. The women’s bantamweight title is vacant after the retirement of the reigning champion Amanda Nunes (35, Brazil). Former champion Juliana Peña (33, USA), ranked No. 2 Raquel Pennington (34, USA), and others are all clamouring for a shot at the title. There are even rumours of a return for Lowe. Holm, ranked No. 3, could also be in the running for a title shot if she wins this fight.

“I’ve always wanted to get my championship belt back, and I feel like I’m not that far away from a title shot,” Holm told the UFC, “and now the title is vacant. I just need to win one fight and I’ll be in the title picture,” he said, reiterating his desire to regain the belt. 오래된토토사이트

Bueno Silva said of the fight against Holm: “It’s like a gift from God. I’m so happy. I thank God for giving me the opportunity to fight a great fighter, a former champion.”
