UFC 273 Press Conference After The Fight
Nine years after his first title shot, against then-featherweight champion Jose Aldo, the Korean Zombie had a second chance to claim gold at UFC 273. South Korean veteran Alexander Volkanowski was paired in the main event against a dominant winner. A chance to kick off a monumental uproar Saturday night in Jacksonville, Florida.
Volkanowski vs Zombie UFC 273 wasn’t the only title fight on the cards. In the co-main event, Aljamaine Stirling and Petr Yan eventually got to play it back. In March 2021, Sterling captured bantamweight gold against Yan, but an illegal knee by the Russian ended the fight in the DQ. For the first time in UFC history, a title had changed hands due to disqualification – and Yan won an interim title in October with a rematch against Cory Sandhagen.
Despite two major title fights, it was a non-title affair that garnered the most interest on Saturday. After defeating his first four opponents, Khamzat Chimayev was having his first true trial in the UFC. Against former title challenger Gilbert Burns, “Borz” had the opportunity to prove that behind the smoke was fire, the rationale behind the hype.
