Alexander Volkanovski set to defend gold against Korean Zombie

The UFC has settled on the next title challenger at 145 pounds.

Champion Alexander Volkanovski will defend his featherweight belt against veteran Chan Sung Jung at UFC 273 on April 9. The location for the event has yet to be announced.

Additionally, the bantamweight title unification bout between undisputed champ Aljamain Sterling and interim champ Petr Yan has been also added to co-main event UFC 273.

Volkanovski (23-1 MMA, 10-0 UFC) was originally scheduled to fight Max Holloway at UFC 272 on March 5. However, an injury forced Holloway out of the bout. Many contenders at featherweight campaigned for the title shot and the UFC has now settled in “Korean Zombie” (17-6 MMA, 7-5 UFC).
