The UFC returns to Florida on Saturday for its fourth pay-per-view of the year with UFC 273, which means the “Embedded” fight-week video series is back to document what’s happening behind the scenes.
UFC 273 takes place at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and early prelims on ESPN+.
UFC 273 features a title-fight doubleheader. In the main event, Alexander Volkanovski (23-1 MMA, 10-0 UFC) is set to put his featherweight title on the line against Chan Sung Jung (17-6 MMA, 7-3 UFC). The co-main event will see bantamweight titleholder Aljamain Sterling (20-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC) meet interim champion Petr Yan (16-2 MMA, 8-1 UFC) in a unification bout rematch.
Additionally, former title challenger Gilbert Burns (20-4 MMA, 13-4 UFC) meets undefeated rising star Khamzat Chimaev (10-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC) in a potential title eliminator in the welterweight division.
The second episode of “Embedded” follows the featured fighters while they get ready for fight week. Here is the UFC’s description of the episode from YouTube:
