UFC 259 is sort of right here. Overlook , neglect — that is the cardboard of playing cards. That is the one try to be enthusiastic about. Three title fights. Three. And never simply any title fights, extraordinarily good ones.
The primary occasion is especially thrilling. The UFC middleweight champ (and mega-star in-waiting) Israel Adesanya strikes up a weight class to develop into the UFC’s newest “champ-champ.” He faces off in opposition to the lately topped UFC gentle heavyweight champ Jan Blachowicz.
Blachowicz is a monstrous hitter and Adesanya may be one of the best 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 most likely the most important ladies’s UFC struggle on the market proper now. Cannot look ahead to that one.
