UFC 253 results live online: Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to ESPN+ pay-per-view (PPV) TONIGHT (Sat., Sept. 26, 2020) with the return of the promotion’s most electrifying champion, Israel Adesanya, who will tangle with undefeated Brazilian wrecking ball, Paulo Costa (13-0), in a main event that is set for five rounds. “The Last Stylebender” vs. “The Eraser” marks just the second time in UFC history that two undefeated male fighters will compete for a world title. And there is bad blood between the two 185-pound standouts, who have gone back-and-forth on social media — and the weigh-in stage — throughout the past year. In UFC 253’s co-headliner, which will emanate from inside Flash Forum on “Fight Island” in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, top-ranked Light Heavyweight contenders Dominick Reyes (No. 1) and Jan Blachowicz (No. 3) will lock horns for the 205-pound title that Jon Jones vacated earlier this year (details).
It’s a championship double dip!
