New, comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has unveiled the poster for the upcoming UFC 253 event set to go down Sept. 26, 2020, inside Flash Forum, located on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The ESPN+-stream pay-per-view (PPV) event is set to feature a long-awaited Middleweight title fight between division champion, Israel Adesanya, taking on No. 1 contender Paulo Costa. The pair have a bitter grudge that has built up over the last year, and now the two talented strikers finally get to put hands on each other.

The co-main event will feature a Light Heavyweight title fight that will see the crowning of a new champion as Dominick Reyes and Jan Blachowicz collide for the 205-pound title left behind by former long-time champ Jon Jones.

The event will be the first of five action-packed cards the promotion will stage on consecutive weeks in its return to “Fight Island,” which will run all the way through Oct. 24, 2020.
