UFC megastar, Israel Adesanya, moves up in weight to face reigning light heavyweight champ Jan Blachowicz in the main event of UFC 259. Should Adesanya win, he will be the fifth fighter in UFC history to hold two belts simultaneously, in different weight classes.
The main event is far from being the only great fight on this card, though, as the co-main event sees G.W.O.A.T Amanda Nunes defend her featherweight title against rising contender Megan Anderson. In recent years, Nunes’ career has hit an upwards trajectory to say the least, her current state of domination perhaps only being rivalled by Jon Jones when he held the 205 lb title.
Other UFC 259 fights to look out for include champion Petr Yan defending his newly attained bantamweight title against no.1 ranked contender Aljamain Sterling, and Thiago Santos vs. rising prospect Aleksandar Rakic.
