UFC 259

Błachowicz vs. Adesanya

March 7th, 2021 | Live 1.00pm AEDT

Come down fight fans this is a massive card

Forget about UFC 257 and Poirier’s second-round TKO win against McGregor or Usman’s third-round TKO win against Burns at UFC 258 because the most anticipated card for 2021 is almost here. Slated for March 7, UFC 259 is going to feature three huge title fights that will leave fans on the edge of their seats.

In the event’s headliner, current Light Heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz will take on Israel Adesanya for the coveted Light Heavyweight title. Adesanya has been the Middleweight champion since 2019 and will be moving up to the Light Heavyweight division to join Blachowicz. Aside from possibly adding another win under his belt, Adesanya has a lot riding on this fight. If successful, Adesanya will become the fourth man in UFC history to be the champion in two divisions simultaneously with the last to achieve this being Henry Cejudo claiming the title of Flyweight and Bantamweight champion at UFC 253. In UFC’s pound-for-pound rankings, Adesanya ranks much higher than Blachowicz in position 3 compared to Blachowicz’s 15. However, Blachowicz has earnt himself an impressive resume over the years. To take out the Light Heavyweight champion title, Blachowicz defeated Dominick Reyes at UFC 253 last September with a technical knockout, ending Reyes’ four-bout win streak.

Co-headlining UFC 259 is the fight for the Women’s Featherweight title. Current champion Amanda Nunes will defend her title against Australia’s Megan Anderson. Nunes is the first and only female fighter to be the champion in two divisions simultaneously as she is also the current Women’s Bantamweight champion. Anderson also has a remarkable track record and is a former Invicta FC Featherweight champion. The fight between Nunes and Anderson was originally scheduled for UFC 256, but Nunes withdrew due to an undisclosed injury. With few Australians competing in UFC’s main card, this is one fight that Australian fans won’t want to miss.
