UFC 273 takes place tonight at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida, and will feature two exciting title fights on the pay-per-view main card.
UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski returns to defend his title once more when he faces #4 ranked challenger Chan Sung Jung. Jung, better known as “The Korean Zombie,” defeated Dan Ige in June to earn his shot at the featherweight title. Volkanovski will attempt to successfully defend the title for the third time tonight after beating Brian Ortega and Max Holloway twice in his last three bouts.
In the co-main event, bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling will get an opportunity to silence the doubters when he faces former champion Petr Yan in a rematch of their title clash in March 2021. Sterling won the bout after Yan was disqualified for an illegal knee.
There are a total of 12 fights scheduled for tonight’s fight card with the early preliminary fights set to commence at 6:00 pm ET on ESPN+.
The pay-per-view main card will commence at 10:00 pm and will only be available to watch live on ESPN+ in the United States. Fight fans can visit the ESPN+ website to order and watch the UFC 273 fight card on a TV, mobile device, desktop computer, laptop, and more ways.
