OCTAGON RETURNS TO THE GREAT WHITE NORTH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Canada for the first time in almost four years when it hosts UFC 289 inside Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, on Sat., June 10, 2023. In UFC 289’s pay-per-view (PPV) main event, women’s Bantamweight champion, Amanda Nunes, will lock horns with No. 5-ranked 135-pound contender, Irene Aldana, while former Lightweight kingpin and current No. 1-seeded contender, Charles Oliveira, battles No. 4-ranked Beneil Dariush in the co-feature with 155-pound title implications on the line.

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

Della Maddalena had a noticeable size advantage and used it to land a crisp lead jab. Rodriguez hung in there to land some counter shots to the body, but Della Maddalena was simply too precise. He picked Rodriguez apart and had his face bloodied with just two minutes off the clock. Eventually, a counter left landed for Della Maddalena and Rodriguez went down. Della Maddalena rushed in for the two piece and soda and that was all she wrote.
