While the UFC is always full of action, this Saturday, April 9, UFC 273 is going to be stacked with plenty of knockdown, drag-out fights, including two title bouts on the main card. In the first featherweight title bout, Alexander “The Great” Volkanovski (23-1-0) is defending his stellar record against Chan Sung Jung (17-6-0), also known as “The Korean Zombie.” Adding another loss to Volkanovski’s record is going to be a tall order for Jung.
If that wasn’t enough, this doubleheader also features a bantamweight title bout between Aljamain “Funk Master” Sterling (20-3-0) and Petr “No Mercy” Yan (16-2-0). Yan has a score to settle after being disqualified in their last meetup during the fourth round for throwing an illegal knee. That said, Sterling hasn’t lost a fight in over four years.
No matter what happens, you’ll want to catch this event, as it’s bound to be one of the best UFC fight cards of the year. Best of all, you don’t need a cable subscription to catch this UFC event. Read on to find out how to watch UFC 273 without cable this weekend.
