UFC is returning to action this Sunday as the reigning UFC Featherweight Champion Alexander Volkanovski (23-1) defends his title against former title contender Chan Sung Jung aka “The Korean Zombie” (17-6) in the main event of a heavily stacked fight card at UFC 273 set to be held at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.

Following his back to back victories against former Featherweight champion Max Holloway, Alexander Volkanovski’s second title defense dates back to UFC 266 in September last year when he defeated Brian Ortega via unanimous decision, which remains his last Octagon appearance. The Aussie will be defending his title for the third time at UFC 273.

Chan Sung Jung, meanwhile, is coming off of a unanimous decision victory in his last UFC fight as well, having defeated Dan Ige in the main event of UFC Vegas 29 in June last year. This will be the Korean’s second Featherweight title fight since facing Jose Aldo all the way back in 2013 at UFC 163.

Aside from the main event, UFC 273 will see another title fight between the reigning Bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling, taking on former champion and current interim champion Petr Yan. The fight is a rematch of their first encounter which took place at UFC 259 in March last year, in which Yan lost his Bantamweight title to Sterling via disqualification in the fourth round due to an illegal knee.
