UFC 273 on Saturday featured a pair of championship fights. One bout saw the favorite win, while the other had an underdog upset. But both champions defended their straps.
The main event, which took place at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla., included an utterly dominant performance from featherweight king Alexander Volkanovski (24-1 MMA, 11-0 UFC), who had little issue battering Chan Sung Jung (17-7 MMA, 7-4 UFC) around the octagon until he secured a fourth-round TKO for his third consecutive defense.
In the co-main event, Aljamain Sterling (21-3 MMA, 13-3 UFC) went tooth-and-nail with Petr Yan (16-3 MMA, 8-2 UFC) for five rounds and came out the undisputed champion by split decision in the unification contest, to which he entered a significant betting underdog.
