UFC 273 Betting Guide Volkanovski vs. The Korean Zombie

Publish Date: 04/01/2022
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

UFC 272 was entertaining but ultimately not worth much more than bragging rights. UFC 273 takes place on April 9th. There’s multiple belts up for grabs, and the best sports betting sites have already been taking a ton of money on this promotion. The event will feature a featherweight championship fight between Alexander Volkanovski (current champion) and Chan Sung Jung better known as The Korean Zombie.

The co-main might be as intriguing as Aljamain Sterling defends his bantamweight champion against Petr Yan. This is a rematch of UFC 259 in which Sterling won the title by disqualification.

We’ll be covering another fight as well, which sees Khamzat Chimaev taking on Gilbert Burns, who was once the welterweight title challenger. It will be a match that could potentially tell us quite a bit about both of these fighters.

Volkanovski (-720) vs. Korean Zombie (+500)

First, let’s talk about the odds for this fight. I cannot remember when a title fight had such ridiculous odds. So, with that being said, do I think Volkanovski wins this fight? Yes of course. Do I think the Aussie is actually this much better than his competitor? No.

I would not recommend that you take anyone at -720. To be fair, I think the Korean Zombie is better than the +500 odds he gets from most online sportsbooks but I wouldn’t bet the house on an upset either. So with that being said, I would recommend staying away the moneyline all together.

I like Volkanovski as winner by decision at -150. While he is a competent striker, he has only three knockouts from his ten UFC fights, all against fighters whose names may not be familiar. The Korean Zombie has a reputation for being a tough fighter with a strong jaw. Volk will remain the champion, but I don’t see him taking out the Zombie before five rounds are over.

The Korean Zombie is worth at least some money with odds this crazy. You can take him to win by KO at +2200. I’ve seen much worse odds in a UFC fight before.

Sterling (+340) vs. Yan (-450).

The spread is also very wide in this fight as well. Makes sense though considering Sterling the current champion won the belt after a disqualification by illegal knee. Petr Yan had fight all but locked up in UFC 259 before the illegal knee took his belt. Although I see Yan dominating again, I don’t like betting on someone as big a favorite as Yan is here at -450.

You can instead take Petr Yan to win by KO/TKO/DQ for +150. Yan should win in under 4.5 rounds at +100 as well. You could also take him to win by knockout in Round 3 for +1000 if you’re feeling a little more lucky.

Burns (+375) vs. (Chimaev -510)

This fight will be just as exciting as the co-mains. Former welterweight champion Gilbert Burns will face Khamzat Chimaev, a rising star in UFC. “Borz”, with a 10-0 record in MMA, has never lost a fight, and none of his four UFC fights have made it past the second round.

The majority of UFC betting sites expect Chimaev to win easily, but he’s never faced someone with the same skill set as Gilbert Burns. The 35-year old Brazilian has only lost one fight in his nine previous bouts, and that was to Kamaru Uman, UFC pound for pound champ. Five Burns fights were won by decision, a much different style then how Chimaev prefers.

Chimaev is here to prove that he really is the best, and I believe that he will show that. Think about taking him to win in round two at +450. You might also consider taking him via KO to finish it in round two at +750.

These are long odds, so do yourself a favor and get these incredible bonuses
