UFC 273: Petr Yan vs. Aljamain Sterling: Betting Data, Odds, and Preview

When: April 9, 10:00 PM EDT

Where: VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena, Jacksonville, FL

The biggest UFC card of the year is officially upon us, as two-title fights headline what should be a terrific night of action from top to bottom. Before the co-main and main events get underway, two up and undefeated up and comers that the UFC is putting a lot of stock in will go off in the welterweight division but in separate fights. 

First, headlining the prelim card is Ian Garry, a Cage Warrior champion making his second appearance with the company and likely last on an undercard. Then in the third fight from the top, Khamzat Chimaev will put his 10-0 record on the line against the #2 contender in the division Gilbert Burns. 

Before the Korean Zombie and Alex Volkanovski square off in the main event, however, a bantamweight rematch serves as our co-main event. With the potential of being the best fight of the night, let’s take a closer look at the co-main featuring two killer bantamweights going at it for the belt.

Petr Yan (16-2-0)

Fighting out of Sverdlovsk Oblast, Russia, “No Mercy” Yan steps back into the octagon six months removed from beating Cory Sandhagen (via decision) for the interim bantamweight belt at UFC 267. More importantly, however, he’s a year removed from an illegal knee (DQ) loss to Sterling that came in the fourth round of a fight many said he was winning. His first loss since 2016 and first with the UFC, Yan has quickly ascended into one of the division’s biggest draws.

A blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Yan comes into the fight with a superior takedown accuracy of 61.5% but is more known for his striking. As of this fight, Yan possesses a significant striking landed per minute of 5.98.

Aljamain Sterling (20-3-0)

A former Division III wrestler, Sterling has battled neck injuries his entire career before ascending the ranks and winning the belt following the DQ win via Yan. A black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Aljo is widely considered one of the most dangerous grapplers in all of UFC, with 40% of his professional wins coming via submission.

Coming into this fight, Sterling’s grappling prowess holds true statistically, as he is averaging .89 submissions per 15 minutes inside the octagon. His takedown average of 1.77 per 15 minutes also is higher than his opponent Yan in this one.
