MMA Planet brings you the live results for UFC 273: Alexander Volkanovski vs. The Korean Zombie. The fight card starts on Saturday afternoon at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.
The stacked card has two title defenses as its main and co-main event. The card’s main event is a featherweight title fight between UFC champion Volkanovski and Chang Sung Jung. For Volkanovski, this is another must-win fight on his way to cementing himself as a legend in the sport. The Korean Zombie was 3 – 0 in the UFC and getting ready for his first title shot against Jose Aldo when Volks fought his first professional MMA fight. He will be looking to prove he can still hang with the upper echelon and probably win Korea’s first UFC title.
Bad blood tides over in the co-main event as Aljamain Sterling battles Petr Yan in a bantamweight title unification bout. Recall that Sterling won the belt via disqualification after Yan illegally kneed him in the head in the fourth round. They have since traded words on social media and at the pre-fight press conference. One thing is certain when they step into the Octagon: Violence!
There are delightful prospects on the card like Ian Garry and Aspen Ladd. None outshines the enigma called Khamzat Chimaev. The Swedish mauler is currently 10 – 0 (all finishes) and the man tasked with ending his hype train is Gilbert Burns. The #2 ranked welterweight in the UFC Rankings has a tall task of doing what no other fighter has done. Even though the odds are firmly stacked against him, Burns will look to take Chimaev’s 0 and get back into title contention.
