UFC 273 – Severe MMA Staff Predictions

The UFC returns to VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Floriday this Saturday for a bumper UFC 273 PPV card. With Irish interest drawn to rising UFC prospect Ian “The Future” Garry at the top of the prelims, the Dubliner will serve as a tasty appetizer ahead of an action-packed main card.

In the main event, Australian featherweight king Alexander Volkanovski makes his third title defense, against “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung. The co-main event offers the long-awaited rematch between bantamweights Aljamain Sterling and Petr Yan. After a controversial first fight resulted in then champion Yan disqualified for an illegal knee, the legitimacy of Sterling’s title as champion can finally be resolved once and for all. Elsewhere on the main card, welterweight sensation Khamzat “Borz” Chimaev will face the toughest test of his career to date in former title contender Gilbert Burns.
