Israel Adesanya will return to the ring on 2 July to engage in a big battle with Jarod Cannonier which will be his second fight since signing new deal with his promoters.

UFC 273: Alexander 'The Great' Defeats the 'Korean Zombie'
Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how the Australian sealed a TKO victory early in the fourth round, having dominated the fight throughout with the incredible speed of his striking – and a few takedowns thrown in – to totally outclass a brave but beaten Chan.
Referee Herb Dean sensibly waved off the fight 45 seconds into the penultimate round after the Zombie was wobbled by two thunderous overhand rights from the champion, having suffered a brutal ground and pound at the end of the third round.

The co-main event was a chess game between Aljamain Sterling and Petr Yan, with the former taking the victory via split decision – thanks to his superior skills on the ground – and becoming the undisputed bantamweight champion, having first claimed the belt last year when the pair met at UFC 259 and his Russian opponent was disqualified for an illegal knee strike.
‘Aljo’ went on to call out TJ Dillashaw as his next opponent, but the close nature of this match surely suggests that a trilogy could be in store. “I won the fight, I was robbed,” said Yan in his post-fight interview.
