Headlining UFC 273 was the second title fight of the evening, with featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski taking on the Korean Zombie, Chan Sung Jung.
Volkanovski put on an outstanding performance, just straight up outclassing Zombie everywhere. The speed and technique advantage was wide. The fight had multiple knockdowns and was so one sided, referee Herb Dean mercifully stepped in on the 4th round.
Volkanovski said after the fight that he was starting to feel bad for dishing out that much damage, and felt that it should’ve been stopped earlier.
