Jacksonville – This Saturday, UFC 273 features two title fights in both the featherweight and bantamweight divisions.
In the main event, featherweight champ Alexander Volkanovski will look to defend his title against The Korean Zombie. In the co main event, bantamweight champ Aljamain Sterling will take on interim bantamweight champ Petr Yan for the second time, in a title unification bout that will decide the true bantamweight champion of the UFC.
Before the title fights begin, former welterweight title challenger Gilbert Burns will take on rising welterweight contender Khamzat Chimaev in a fight that could very well decide who receives the next title shot against reigning welterweight champ, Kamaru Usman.
Middleweights Kelvin Gastelum and Dricus du Plessis were scheduled to fight on the card, however, the fight was canceled after Gastelum was forced to pull out due to an undisclosed injury. The UFC was not able to find a replacement opponent for du Plessis.
A featherweight bout between Pat Sabatini and Gavin Tucker has also been scrapped from the card after Tucker withdrew from the fight due to undisclosed reasons.
