Recommended Posts


Headlining on the 10th of April, UFC 273 is here at last, and Alexander Volkanovski faces Chan Sung Jung as the promotion returns to Jacksonville, Florida with a promise of a full fight card that includes a rising star and a pair of title fights.  


Alexander Volkanovski is the current featherweight champion carrying Australia with pride while Chan Sung Jung, the Korean Zombie, is a worthwhile contender from South Korea.  Volkanovski is determined to defend the UFC featherweight title against the Korean Zombie. The main card is set for 10 AM (PST) from Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida. This is surely one of the best matches to wager in your predictions, and here is a face-off of both the contenders for the main event. 


Volkanovski has had an impressive record ever since he started in 2012, especially with his 20-fight win streak which was preceded by losing the 4th fight of his career. Since joining UFC in 2016, he is 10-0. At UFC 245, he triumphed over Max Holloway and claimed the UFC featherweight title in 2019, and he beat Holloway again in UFC 251 in 2020. Volkanovski has 603 strikes with 6.42 significant strikes landed per minute, 60% strike defense, and a 70% takedown defense 


Chan Sung Jung, also known as “the Korean Zombie”, made his UFC debut in 2011. His last match aiming for the featherweight gold was in 2013, one which he unfortunately lost to Jose Aldo via TKO. After a mandatory military service time in South Korea, he came back in 2017, and he is 4-2 ever since. Jung’s last victory was last June 2021 when he fought against Dan Ige. Jung has landed 216 strikes with 4.07 significant strikes per minute, 55% significant strike defense, and 77% takedown defense. 


With quite an impressive record, Volkanovski surely has an advantage over Jung. While it is undeniable that Jung surpasses Volkanovski in some aspects, Volkanovski remains superior in most. For the upcoming match, will Volkanovski be able to handle and combat the Korean Zombie? Can the Korean Zombie take too many hits from Volkanovski
