One of the biggest fight cards of the year will unfold later this evening (Sat., Mar. 6, 2021) live on ESPN+ PPV from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, as UFC 259 sets sail with a record-breaking 15 fights and three massive title bouts.

Leading the way will be a light heavyweight clash between current UFC champion Jan Blachowicz and undefeated middleweight king Israel Adesanya. Before that, double champ Amanda Nunes will defend her women’s featherweight strap against Megan Anderson, while Petr Yan puts his UFC bantamweight crown on the line for the first time against top contender Aljamain Sterling.

The stacked PPV main card and “Prelims” portion of the event will also feature notable fighters such as Dominick Cruz, Thiago Santos, Joseph Benavidez, Islam Makhachev, Aleksandar Rakic, Drew Dober, and Sean Brady. Pretty incredible to say the least.
