Alexander Volkanovski vs. Chan Sung Jung Scheduled For UFC 273 In April

UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski will take on Chan Sung Jung at UFC 273 on April 9.

MMA journalist Ariel Helwani was the first to report the news via a tweet, although the promotion is yet to officially announce anything regarding the booking itself. The matchup comes on the heels of former UFC featherweight champion, Max Holloway, being forced out of a proposed trilogy bout with Volkanovski after he aggravated an old injury. Volkanovski is currently riding an insane 20-fight winning streak that dates back to December 2013 and is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Brian Ortega at UFC 266 in his latest title defense. "The Korean Zombie" meanwhile is 3-1 in his last four Octagon outings and is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Dan Ige back at UFC Vegas 29.
