Alexander Volkanovski and Chan-Sung Jung ‘The Korean Zombie’ will face off in the Main event of UFC 273 on 9th April.
Volkanovski made his pro debut in 2012, and in 2013 he lost in his fourth career fight. Since then, he has compiled a 20-fight winning streak. Volkanovski beat Holloway in a rematch for the title and defended against Brian Ortega recently.
Jung made his pro debut in 2007. He joined the UFC in 2011 and is 7-3 with the promotion. He had a gap between runs in the UFC because of mandatory military service in South Korea. He is 3-1 in his last four fights; his last bout was a unanimous decision win over Dan Ige last June.
The co-main event will be Aljamain Sterling defending the bantamweight title against Petr Yan. Sterling made his pro debut in 2011. “Funk Master” is on a 6-fight win streak since losing to Marlon Moraes in 2017.
Yan made his debut in 2014. He joined the UFC in 2018 and is 8-1 with the promotion. Yan’s last fight was a win over Cory Sandhagen last October for the interim UFC bantamweight title. Yan was disqualified in the 4th round for landing an illegal knee, giving Sterling the win and title.
Gilbert Burns will be looking to become the first fighter ever to defeat Khamzat Chimaev. “Durinho” scored a dominant decision win over Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson to rebound from a loss to welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, while Chimaev has ran through his first four UFC opponents, finishing all fights by knockout or submission.
