MASSIVE MIDDLEWEIGHT MATCH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) makes its highly anticipated return to Sydney, Australia, for the first time in five years on Sat., Sept. 9, 2023, with a 185-pound world title fight inside Qudos Bank Arena. In the ESPN+-streamed pay-per-view (PPV) main event, Middleweight roost-ruler, Israel Adesanya, plans to silence No. 5-seeded contender, Sean Strickland. In UFC 293’s hard-hitting Heavyweight co-main event, No-6-ranked fan favorite, Tai Tuivasa, locks horns with towering Russian, Alexander Volkov (No. 8).

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

Volkanovski and Jung are featured in two very different pre-fight scenarios. “The Great” spends the day in the swamps of nearby Georgia “blowing shit up” with his friends and training partners while “The Korean Zombie” enjoys a meal cooked in the quiet company of his wife. I feel like there’s an easy “Deliverance” joke here and the dueling banjos are playing in my head but I don’t want to get canceled by “The Peach State.”

In the UFC 273 co-main event, current bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling defends his 145-pound strap against bitter rival and ex-division kingpin Petr Yan. In addition, former welterweight title challenger Gilbert Burns looks to derail the hype train of undefeated 170-pound phenom Khamzat Chimaev. Expect more on “Durinho” and “Borz” from the nosy “Embedded” cameras as we get closer to fight night.
