The UFC 263 main card features a middleweight title bout between reigning champ Israel Adesanya (20-1) and Marvin Vettori (17-4-1). Adesanya rides a nine-match middleweight win streak, tied for second-longest in division history. The two met three years ago, in the same arena, with Adesanya emerging triumphant in a tight split decision. Since then, Vettori has won five straight bouts, dropping only one of 17 rounds.

The co-main fight is also a rematch as flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo (20-1-1) will face off against Brandon Moreno (18-5-2). The two battled to a high-action draw in December in one of 2020’s top “Fight of the Year” contenders. Moreno is riding a five-match unbeaten streak while Figueiredo hasn’t lost in his last six bouts.

Calling the live action for UFC 263 will be lead play-by-play announcer Jon Anik, alongside color commentary specialist Joe Rogan and former lightweight fighter Paul Felder. Megan Olivi will handle reporting duties.
