UFC 263 takes place in Glendale, Arizona on Saturday night, with two title fights on the card and a big showdown with fan favorite Nate Diaz.
In the main event, Israel Adesanya defends his middleweight title against Marvin Vettori of Italy, whom “Stylebender” topped on points in 2018, a year and a half before winning divisional gold.
The co-main event is another rematch, as Brandon Moreno challenges flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo again, six months after the pair fought for a draw.
On the other hand, Diaz returns after almost two years to face third welterweight Leon Edwards in a historic fight. For the first time in history, the UFC is turning a non-title, main-event fight into a five-round reunion as Britain’s Edwards seeks a rematch with 175-pound champion Kamaru Usman.
