The UFC 273 pre-fight press conference took place earlier tonight, and we’ve got the highlights for you right here!
UFC 273 takes place Saturday, April 9, 2022, from the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida. The main event will feature Alexander Volkanovski defending his featherweight championship against “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung.
The co-main event will spotlight a bantamweight title unification grudge match between undisputed champion Aljamain Sterling and interim champ Petr Yan. And of course, all eyes will be on the feature welterweight bout between #2-ranked Gilbert Burns and undefeated juggernaut Khamzat “Borz” Chimaev.
Also on the card will be top-10 strawweights Mackenzie Dern (#5) and Tecia Torres (#7).
Below, you can find some of the most memorable moments from today’s UFC 273 pre-fight press conference featuring each of the above fighters.
The UFC did not allow face-offs, perhaps in part due to Dana White‘s absence and Petr Yan threatening to eradicate Aljamain Sterling and his team on sight. However, Volkanovski insisted on facing off with The Korean Zombie, and he got his wish.
