With two championship fights on the card, UFC 273 won’t be short of action. The headline clash, Volkanovski vs The Korean Zombie, will see two of the UFC’s finest go head-to-head for the featherweight title.
Alexander “The Great” Volkanovski (23-1) is targeting a third successful title defence. The Australian fighter is currently on a 20-fight winning streak – only three other competitors have achieved double-digit winning streaks inside the Octagon according to UFC.com.
