We are just one day away from witnessing UFC 273.

One More Sleep

The stacked pay-per-view event is headlined by Alexander Volkanovski, as he defends his featherweight title against ‘The Korean Zombie.’ In the co-main event, Aljamain Sterling and Petr Yan will unify the bantamweight strap in their highly-anticipated rematch.

Rising star Khamzat Chimaev also returns against top contender Gilbert Burns. 

Before the fighters head to war, they weighed in on Friday morning to make things official. The morning weigh-ins would see Sterling tear up on the scales. The long layoff took an emotional toll for the returning champion. More on that below.
