Alexander Volkanovski dominates Chan Sung Jung in UFC 273 headliner

Alexander Volkanovski launches an all-round clinic against Chan Sung Jung.

UFC Featherweight Champion Alexander Volkanovski used to have doubts, but now he’s arguably one of the greatest UFC fighters of all time after a stellar performance against Chan Sung Jung at UFC 273.

Volkanovski found his rhythm on his feet in the early minutes against Jung. His speed combined with his ability to dictate range gave Jung all sorts of seizures throughout the fight.

Volkanovski also prevailed in the grappling aspect of the fight, choking Jung and landing hard ground and pounds. He was also able to control Jung in the clinch and land some stiff knees to the body.

After three rounds of destruction, Volkanovski hit Jung in round 4 with a series of punches that forced referee Herb Dean to step in and stop the action.

Alexander Volkanovski is one of the pound-for-pound best

Volkanovski came to UFC 273 after a wild win over Brian Ortega at UFC 266. Despite coming as close to submission as possible against Ortega twice, he earned a unanimous decision win for his second straight title defense.

Volkanovski clinched the title over Max Holloway at UFC 245 before issuing a split decision in an immediate rematch at UFC 251. He entered this fight with Jung, who was unbeaten in his UFC tenure.

Jung, also known as “The Korean Zombie”, made his second career featherweight challenger after a loss to Jose Aldo at UFC 163. Most recently, he won victories over the likes of Dan Ige, Frankie Edgar and Renato Moicano to earn the title shot.

Volkanovski holds the featherweight throne and could face Holloway in a trilogy later this year.
