IT’S FIGHT DAY! UFC 273 is set to be the fourth major PPV event for the biggest MMA company in the world in 2022, but what fights are taking place on the night?
A much-anticipated rematch for the UFC Bantamweight Championship is set to take place on the card following a controversial title change in 2021.
As it stands, this looks to be a pretty stacked fight card, allowing for any potential changes going forward due to injury or COVID-19 restrictions and forced cancellations.
Here’s everything you need to know about the UFC 273 fight card, including the alternate for the main event.

As noted, all UFC fight cards are subject to change, either due to injury or because of COVID-19 restrictions.
Despite originally being cleared to fight at the event, Max Holloway will no longer be challenging for the UFC Featherweight Championship against Volkanovski.
It was however revealed by ESPN that Holloway is now back in training and will reportedly be the alternate should Volkanovski or Korean Zombie won’t be available for the fight night on Saturday April 9th from the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, FL, United States.
The highly anticipated rematch between Aljamain Sterling and Petr Yan will be co-headlining this card. This will be the first time that the two men have met since Yan got himself disqualified during their last contest, losing his 135-pound title in doing so.
