Sometimes, one unexpected act of kindness leads to another.
The chain-reaction started with Holloway (25-7 MMA, 21-7 UFC) when he became aware one of Jung’s retirement fight gloves had been stolen by a fan. Holloway defeated Jung (17-8 MMA, 7-5 UFC) by second-round TKO in that Aug. 26 fight at UFC Fight Night 225 in Singapore. Jung took his gloves off in typical retirement ceremony fashion and placed them in the cage.
However, when he collected the gloves and exited down the runway, a fan snatched one of them. Jung, out of emotion and the fact that he was already missing one glove, chucked the other into the crowd.

Jung later said on his YouTube channel he was upset neither of the gloves from his final in-cage battle were in his possession. While Holloway couldn’t retrieve those specific gloves, he decided to send Jung the next best thing: his own gloves from the fight.
