UFC 273 will air on Saturday, April 9th from the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida. The main card is set to get going at 10 p.m. ET and will air on ESPN+PPV. The five-bout main card will be highlighted with Alexander Volkanovski putting his featherweight title on the line against ‘The Korean Zombie’ Cahn Sung Jung.

Volkanovski enters with a 23-1 record and is one of the best fighters in the entire UFC. He is riding a 20-match win streak and has defended his featherweight title twice so far. Most recently, Volkanovski took on Brian Ortega in September of 2021. He came away with the unanimous decision victory which was his fourth-decision victory in a row.

The Korean Zombie hasn’t had the recent success that Volkanovski has. He is 3-2 over his last five fights and has a total record of 17-6. Most recently, he fought Dan Ige in June of 2021 and won by unanimous decision. Jung has eight submission victories under his belt and has never been submitted. He has the ability to hang around with Volkanovski, but that actually favors the champ with his string of decision wins.
