“It’s an honor to welcome back the UFC and its President, Dana White, to the City of Jacksonville,” Mayor Lenny Curry said. “I reached out to Dana in December to let him know we were ready to host another match-up as soon as possible, and as he always does, Dana delivered! Our city has consistently demonstrated that we are poised to host world-class sporting events of this caliber and we can’t wait to see the UFC, and its thousands of fans, in early April.“
UFC 273 will be headlined by the featherweight title fight between reigning division champion Alexander Volkanovski and top 145-pound contender Chan Sung Jung. In the UFC 273 co-main event, controversial bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling defends his strap against bitter rival and ex-division kingpin Petr Yan.
