UFC 263 will take place on Saturday, June 12, at the Gila River Arena, in Glendale, Arizona. The UFC 263 main event is a rematch between Israel Adesanya and Marvin Vettori but this time the UFC Middleweight Championship is on the line.
The event will also feature a second title fight with the UFC Flyweight Championship up for grabs as Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno battle for the second time. Unlike the main event, the flyweight rematch is an immediate one after the pair went the distance in a majority draw in December 2012. Figueiredo retained the title and claimed The Body Lock’s 2020 Fighter of the Year award after a spectacular 12 months that saw him defeat Joseph Benavidez twice and then defend his title against Alex Perez.
One of the most anticipated bouts coming up at the UFC 263 fight card, however, is the welterweight clash between Leon Edwards and Nate Diaz. Diaz returns to action for the first time since November 2019 to fight Edwards, who is already within reach of a title shot.
