Crucial 5 round fights under Israel Adesanya vs Marvin Vettori

The card looks stacked from top to bottom with three five-round fights. The co-main event will see a rematch between Deiveson Figueredo vs Brandon Moreno.

They fought to a draw at UFC 256 and impressed Dana White. Therefore, he booked an instant rematch between them. Now both the fighters will lock horns for the flyweight championship once more.

Also, arguably one of the most awaited fights on the main card will be between Nate Diaz and Leon Edwards. This welterweight showdown will be the first non-title non-main event five-round fight. It’s a very important fight for ‘Rocky’ as he is looking to become the next welterweight king.

After a victory over the popular Nate Diaz, he might get the title shot for his next bout. Whereas defeating a top-ranked opponent like ‘Rocky’ could do the same for Diaz.
