Adesanya is set to defend his UFC middleweight title this Saturday, June 12, when he faces #3 contender Marvin Vettori for the second time.

Vettori has climbed up the rankings with big wins against Kevin Holland and Jack Hermansson most recently.

The UFC 263 fight card also features another title fight with Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Brandon Moreno set to take place in the co-main event. Nate Diaz also makes his return in a special five-round fight with #3 ranked welterweight Leon Edwards.
