Join us today on Bloody Elbow for live results, discussion, round scoring, and play-by-play as UFC 273 goes down in Jacksonville, Florida.
Today’s show will feature two title fights and a highly-anticipated matchup in the welterweight division. The headliner will see UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski looking to cement his legacy when he defends against the Korean Zombie, Chan Sung Jung. The co-main is for the undisputed bantamweight title, with Aljamain Sterling and Petr Yan finally settling their long-running grudge.
Oh, and that Chimaev guy too. He’s fighting by far the biggest test in his career, former 170-pound title challenger Gilbert Burns.
This post will cover the first three fights of the main card, up to Chimaev vs. Burns.
Today’s show is a standard PPV. There are three early preliminary card fights, which should kick off around 6:15pm ET/3:15pm PT. Those will air on ESPN+ and Fight Pass.
