Alexander Volkanovski vs Korean Zombie, official for UFC 273

MMA – The opposition was expected, it is now official. Alexander Volkanovski to face Korean Zombie in UFC 273 on April 9

As we know, Max Holloway is forfeited indefinitely. Thus, the trilogy just announced against the champion will not be able to take place. But that doesn’t mean that Alexander Volkanovsky won’t defend his belt. Also, despite the multiple choices available to him, it was the Korean Zombie who was in pole position. Rather logical if we stick to the current classification of the featherweight category. Indeed, Chan Sung Jung of his real name is currently fourth. Giga Chikadze and Calvin Kattar will face each other soon, the deadline would probably have come a little early for them. For his part, Yair Rodriguez was undoubtedly a little too vehement towards the champion.

At the same time, there was always the Henry Cejudo option. Since the “Triple C” immediately offered as a replacement for the event. The latter has always shown a certain interest in the featherweight champion. A way to secure more and more titles for the Olympic medalist and field-field within the UFC. Only here, the option has, it seems, never really been considered by the UFC.

Finally, it is the Korean Zombie who will face officially to Alexander Volkanovski. It was Ariel Helwani who reported the news first. The Korean has a golden opportunity to snatch the UFC featherweight belt. Previously, he had made a good battle against Brian Ortega, before finally faltering in the middle of the opposition. Since then, he has obtained a great decision against Dan Ige over five rounds.

The first reactions to this announcement are quite mixed. Understandably, the idea of ​​a top trilogy between Holloway and Volkanovski particularly excited fans. But we would be wrong to underestimate the contribution of the Korean Zombie in this face-to-face.

So, will the outcome be in favor of the challenger or rather the champion who seems well installed on the roof of the category?
