The UFC is showcasing a World Championship Doubleheader this weekend at their UFC 273 PPV event. The first title fight in our Main Event will be a collision between UFC Featherweight Champion, Alexander ‘The Great’ Volkanovksi, defending his belt against contender, #4 ranked, Chan Sung Jung - ‘The Korean Zombie’. In our second title fight of the night, we will have “The Funkmaster’ Aljamain Sterling, holding a (20-3 record, fighting out of Uniondale, N.Y. He intends to solidify his claim as the UFC Bantamweight Champion, after his DQ victory over Yan to capture the belt last year. A BJJ black belt, with wrestling skills, he holds impressive submission wins over Cory Sandhagen, Cody Stamann and Takeya Mizugaki. Meanwhile, the #11 ranked men’s pound-for-pound fighter, Petr Yan, is holding a 16-2 record of his own, fighting out of Yekaterinburg, Russia. Certainly Yan’s game plan is to recapture the UFC Bantamweight Championship. Yan brings deadly skills as a grappler, as well as a striker. He has provided us with knockouts to remember against Urijah Faber, Jose Aldo and Douglas Silva de Andrade. Also on the PPV card, we have Welterweights Gilbert ‘Durinho’ Burns vs. phenom Khamzat Chimaev going to war. Neither of these guys know how to put on a boring fight. Burns, the Brazilian native from Rio is fighting out of Florida, holding the distinction of being ranked #2 in the division, as a former title contender, with a storied career record of 20-4. Meanwhile, fan favorite and internet sensation, #11 ranked Russian finisher, Khamzat ‘Borz’ Chimaev, fighting out of Sweden with an undefeated 10-0 record is walking into the Octagon tonight with his sights set on inevitably becoming champion. The bold Chechnya native burst onto the scene in as dominant a fashion as the sport has ever seen back in 2020, racking up three consecutive stoppage wins in just two months.
