Max Holloway and Will Chope to Meet at Singapore's UFC Fight Night 34

A featherweight bout between Max Holloway and Will Chope will take place at UFC Fight Night 34 in Singapore, UFC officials announced on Tuesday.

The Holloway vs. Chope showdown adds to the UFC‘s growing Asian card, which takes place on Jan. 4 (Jan. 3 in the U.S.) at the Marina Bay Sands.

Holloway (7-3) will look to recover from a two-fight losing streak with the UFC Singapore card, dropping his last bout to Conor McGregor at UFC Fight Night 26. His last win came over Leonard Garcia at UFC 155 in December of 2012.

Chope (19-5) makes his UFC debut with the Holloway fight. In the regional circuit, Chope has racked up 24 professional fights in just over three years. Twelve of his 19 wins have come by way of submission.

UFC Fight Night 34 is headlined by a welterweight fight between Jake Ellenberger and former Strikeforce champion Tarec Saffiedine.
