UFC 259 is nearly right here. Forgot , overlook — that is the cardboard of playing cards. That is the one try to be enthusiastic about. Three titles fights. Three. And never simply any title fights, extraordinarily good ones.
The principle occasion is especially thrilling. The UFC middleweight champ (and mega-star in-waiting) Israel Adesanya strikes up a weight class to turn into the UFC’s newest “champ-champ”. He faces off in opposition to the not too long ago topped UFC mild heavyweight champ Jan Blachowicz.
Blachowicz is a monstrous hitter and Adesanya may be the perfect pure striker within the UFC. This matador/bull match-up is bound to have everybody on the sting of their seats for so long as it lasts.
However we additionally get to see the consensus greatest feminine fighter of all-time Amanda Nunes defend her featherweight crown in opposition to Australian star Megan Anderson. Outdoors of a rematch with Cris Cyborg, that is in all probability the largest ladies’s UFC combat on the market proper now. Cannot watch for that one.
We additionally get a title combat in maybe probably the most stacked division in UFC: Bantamweight. Petr Yan vs. Aljamain Sterling is a battle between more than likely the 2 greatest bantamweights on this planet proper now. Cannot wait to see how this one performs out.
