Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to the pay-per-view (PPV) market this weekend with the UFC 259: “Blachowicz vs. Adesanya” mixed martial arts (MMA) event featuring three championship title fights on the main card from Las Vegas.

Broadcast plans for the March 6 fight card were shared by MMA Junkie and longtime color commentator Joe Rogan will join retired heavyweight Daniel Cormier alongside play-by-play man Jon Anik. As always, Bruce Buffer will handle the horn inside the cage.

Michael Eaves hosts the UFC 259 post-fight show with Chael Sonnen and Paul Felder while Megan Olivi takes care of roving interviews.

The PPV main card will be headlined by the light heavyweight title fight between Jan Blachowicz and Israel Adesanya, as “The Last Stylebender” bumps up from middleweight to test the might of “Polish Power.”

In addition, women’s featherweight champion Amanda Nunes collides with top contender Megan Anderson not long before bantamweight kingpin Petr Yan answers the call of 135-pound challenger Aljamain Sterling.
