UFC 273: Volkanovski vs The Korean Zombie, featuring two of the most highly anticipated championship fights of the year, will stream live from VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla., this Saturday, April 9, at 10 p.m. ET, exclusively on ESPN+ PPV. Early prelims will be streamed on ESPN+ beginning at 6 p.m. ET. Prelims will continue on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and ESPN+ at 8 p.m. ET, followed by the ESPN+ Pay-Per-View main card starting at 10 p.m. ET.

In the main event, UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski (23-1) will defend his title against “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung (17-6), the No. 4 UFC featherweight contender who has won four of his last six fights, including a “Fight of the Night” and three “Performance of the Night” bonuses. Meanwhile, Volkanovski has won 20 straight contests, including his last 10 in the UFC, and is defending his featherweight belt for the third time, following decision wins over former champion Max Holloway (23-6) and top contender Brian Ortega (15-2).

The co-main event will showcase a UFC bantamweight title unification rematch between current champion Aljamain Sterling (20-3) and interim champion Petr Yan (16-2), who is coming off a dominating victory over Cory Sandhagen (14-4) at UFC 267 last October. Sterling is on a six-fight win streak, including his victory over Yan at UFC 259 in which Yan was disqualified following an illegal knee strike in Round 4.

In addition to the two championship fights closing the night, the Main Card features UFC welterweight phenom Khamzat Chimaev (10-0), arguably the most dominant prospect the UFC has ever seen, taking on his toughest challenge yet in No. 2 UFC welterweight contender Gilbert Burns (20-4). Chimaev is 4-0 in his young UFC career, while out landing opponents 254-2 in total strikes, and Burns has been defeated only once in his last eight fights, a loss to UFC welterweight champion and No. 1 UFC pound-for-pound fighter Kamaru Usman (20-1) at UFC 258.
