The UFC 263 main event is a rematch between Israel Adesanya and Marvin Vettori but this time the UFC Middleweight Championship is on the line.

The event will also feature a second title fight with the UFC Flyweight Championship up for grabs as Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno battle for the second time. Unlike the main event, the flyweight rematch is an immediate one after the pair went the distance in a majority draw in December 2012. Figueiredo retained the title and claimed The Body Lock’s 2020 Fighter of the Year award after a spectacular 12 months that saw him defeat Joseph Benavidez twice and then defend his title against Alex Perez.

One of the most anticipated bouts coming up at the UFC 263 fight card, however, is the welterweight clash between Leon Edwards and Nate Diaz. Diaz returns to action for the first time since November 2019 to fight Edwards, who is already within reach of a title shot.

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.

UFC 258

Usman vs. Burns

Sunday February 13th, 2021 | Live 1.00pm AEDT

The hugely anticipated Welterweight fight between Usman and Burns is once again on the books with the two expected to meet at UFC 258 on February 14. Originally slated to fight last July at UFC 251, Burns and his coach tested positive to COVID-19 and was forced to pull out, subsequently replaced by Jorge Masvidal. The meet-up was later rescheduled for UFC 256 in December, but Usman required more time to recover from injuries before taking on another opponent.

Coming off the back of two wins in 2020 against tough opponents, Colby Covington and Masdival, Usman will be fighting to maintain his current winning streak and take it from six to seven wins. However, Burns isn’t going to be an easy opponent. The three-time World Champion and World Cup gold medallist has also built his own list of impressive records including defeating former UFC Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley in 2020.
