The UFC 273 fight card is announced and they are ready this Saturday, April 9th with early prelims starting at 5:15pm CDT from the Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena, in Jacksonville. Catch the prelims all on ESPN+ with the main card airing on PPV.
This night promises to be a special one, as two titles are on the line. The 23-1 featherweight champion Volkanovski will face The Korean Zombie for the title, and the co main event will unify the bantamweight title, as interim champion Peter Yan (16-2) will face the long awaited return of Aljamin Sterling (20-3). Yan and Sterling met once before but Yan was disqualified, due to an illegal knee, though he was arguably winning the fight before hand. The list of reasons that make this April 9th a great night to be a fight fan are long indeed.
