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.
