UFC 273: Joe Rogan, Jon Anik, Paul Felder Return To The Table
Paul Felder will replace Daniel Cormier on the UFC 273 commentary team.
Joe Rogan, Jon Anik and Felder will be commentating on the two-title fight card this Saturday. The headliner will feature a featherweight bout between division champion Alexander Volkanovski and “Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung.
In the co-main event, bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling will defend his belt against the interim champion Petr Yan, who seeks to settle the score from their first meeting in March.
Rogan and Anik were commentated on Sterling vs. Yan 1, with Daniel Cormier, where Yan landed an illegal knee to Sterling and lost the belt.
Meanwhile, it will not be the first time Felder commentates Volkanovski’s title fight. He was included in the trio when Volkanovski and Brian Ortega held a Fight of the Year contender that was full of exchanges, submission attempts, and ground and pound.
Gilbert Burns and Khamzat Chimaev also will find out who is the best to be the next title challenger.
Sterling and the Korean Zombie are massive underdogs like Burns. This is one of the few moments when an undisputed champion is a huge underdog in a title fight.
Sterling was losing the fight when Yan landed a knee to the face when Sterling was on the ground. Yan earned the interim title against Cory Sandhagen.
Preliminaries will be on ESPN at 8 p.m. ET. The pay-per-view main card will start at 10 p.m. ET on Saturday.
