UFC 259 is happening this Saturday, March 6, from the UFC Apex Facility in Las Vegas, Nevada.
UFC 259 is shaping up to be an early contender for card of the year. With three title fights in the main event. Including a UFC Middleweight bout with Israel Adesanya.
UFC 259 Main Event Preview
In the main event, you'll see Isral Adesanya taking on the recently crowned UFC Light Heavyweight champ Jan Blachowicz. Who is a monstrous hitter, and Adesanya is the best pure striker in the UFC right now.
On the women's side, we get to see Amanda Nunes, who is the best female fighter of all time. She was only the second woman to defeat Ronda Rousey, and did it in just 48 seconds. But that was nearly five years ago. Nunes will be taking on Cris Cyborg in a rematch. And this is set to be the biggest UFC women's match of all time.
Then there's the UFC Bantamweight. Which has Petr Yan vs Aljamain Sterling in a battle between what is probably the best two bantamweights in the world currently.
We're getting three great main events in UFC 259, and it's bound to be one of the best yet.
