BLOCKBUSTER CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLEHEADER! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) International Fight Week returns to T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., July 2, 2022, capped by a stacked card headlined by a blockbuster championship double header. In UFC 276’s pay-per-view (PPV) main event, reigning Middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya, defends his crown against No. 2-ranked contender, Jared Cannonier. In the co-main event, Featherweight champion, Alexander Volkanovski, has his sights set on successfully defending his title once again against No. 1-seeded contender, Max Holloway, for the third (and likely final) time.

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

Moicano got off to an early start but it was Hernandez who landed an array of attacks towards the end of the first to steal back momentum. The second round saw Moicano come out firing and land a combination of right hands that left Hernandez stumbling back into the cage. Hernandez initiated a desperate takedown attempt and Moicano was there to reverse position and secure the rear-naked choke finish.
