UFC 273 was another stellar pay-per-view, with two enthralling title fights that saw both champions retain their titles, while the welterweight bout between Khamzat Chimaev and Gilbert Burns delivered a Fight of the Year contender.

On this week’s show, Simon looks back at the big fights, and the big talking points, from Saturday night in Jacksonville as Alexander Volkanovski and Aljamain Sterling defended their belts in very different ways.

Volkanovski was a class above “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung as he finished his man early in the fourth round to extend his winning streak to 21 fights, while Sterling edged Petr Yan in a closely-contested title unification battle in the co-main event. Some complained about the scoring – Simon has his own take on the scorecards…

The show also bids a fond farewell to Sandhu, who is stepping away from the pod to focus on other projects. With increasing scheduling and work commitments making it increasingly difficult to get both lads behind the mic at the same time each week, running a “two-man booth” became untenable, and the show will now continue in a slightly different format, with Simon at the helm. And, who knows? Maybe the pair will reunite with Sandhu as a special guest at some point down the line…

We’ll have more news about what’s to come in the days and weeks ahead, but for now, make sure you subscribe to our Substack to make sure you don’t miss a thing. As always, thanks for supporting the show. Enjoy the fights this weekend!
