UFC 263: A lot on the line as two epic battles go down in the Octagon in one night.
The middleweight championship battle involves Israel Adesanya fresh from a defeat against Jan Blachowicz in his title challenge for Blachowicz’s light heavyweight championship at UFC 259, but has remained unbeaten in his division, with an emphatic record of 20 wins and 1 defeat (by decision) in 21 bouts.
Marvin Vettori who is challenging for Adesanya’s middleweight title is also a terrific fighter with a terrific record in the arena, boasting of a massive 17 wins, 4 defeats (all by decision) and 1 draw in 22 fights; it is just about fair to say that Vettori who is ranked third in the middleweight division is a worthy challenger for the title and that the both of them will give us a fight that is worth every penny.
In the flyweight category, the championship battle going down involves a magnificent Deiveson Figueiredo who boasts of a stupendous 20 wins in 22 fights, suffering only 1 loss throughout his career (by decision) and 1 draw. It is an undisputable fact that Figueiredo is totally deserving to be atop his division with his super consistency and battle efficiency.
He gets to face off against a very decent fighter in Brandon Moreno who has earned a chance at winning the title in the flyweight category via a re-match, after losing his title to Figueiredo earlier. Moreno has a superb fight record of 18 wins (10 by submission), 5 losses (all by decision) and 2 draws in a total of 25 fights. Moreno would most definitely be giving his all in the fight in a bid to regain his title and his number one spot in the division.
