| VOLKANOVSKI VS THE KOREAN ZOMBIE |
LIVE FROM 12.00PM AEDT |
The main event is Australia’s Alexander Volkanovski vs. “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung for the Volkanovski’s featherweight title. Volkanovski made his pro debut in 2012, and in 2013 he lost in his fourth career fight. Since then, he has compiled a 20-fight winning streak. He came to the UFC in 2016, and in 2019 he beat Max Holloway for the UFC featherweight title. Volkanovski beat Holloway in a rematch for the title and beat Brian Ortega in September to hold onto the belt.
Jung made his pro debut in 2007. He joined the UFC in 2011 and is 7-3 with the promotion. He had a gap between runs in the UFC because of mandatory military service in South Korea. He is 3-1 in his last four fights; his last bout was a unanimous decision win over Dan Ige last June.
The co-main event will be Aljamain Sterling defending the bantamweight title against Petr Yan. Sterling made his pro debut in 2011. He won bantamweight championships in Cage Fury Fighting and Ring of Combat before joining the UFC in 2014. “Funk Master” is on a six-fight win streak since losing to Marlon Moraes in 2017.
Yan made his debut in 2014. He joined the UFC in 2018 and is 8-1 with the promotion. Yan’s last fight was a win over Cory Sandhagen last October for the interim UFC bantamweight title. He was the bantamweight champion when he fought Sterling in March 2021. Yan was disqualified in the fourth round for landing an illegal knee, giving Sterling the win and title.
