The time has arrived for UFC 259.
Tonight, March 6, UFC 259 will take place inside the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main event, UFC Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya will challenge Jan Blachowicz for the UFC Light Heavyweight gold. Adesanya is vying to become a UFC “Champ-Champ.”
Speaking of the “Champ-Champ” status, Amanda Nunes will put her UFC Featherweight Championship on the line against Megan Anderson. Nunes, who also holds the bantamweight gold, hopes to maintain the “Champ-Champ” distinction. Anderson is looking to hand Nunes her first loss since September 2014.
The first title fight will feature Petr Yan putting his bantamweight gold on the line against Aljamain Sterling. This will be Yan’s first UFC Bantamweight Title defense and Sterling’s first crack at UFC gold.
