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!

Cannonier struggled early in defending the takedowns and Brunson’s pressure inside and along the cage. “Killa Gorilla” was strong enough to power his way out of some dangerous positions and needed to change up his gameplan for the second. Brunson ate some big shots early into the second round and started to fade pretty badly. Cannonier ended up connecting with an elbow off the break that hurt Brunson even more and allowed Cannonier to unload a barrage of punches and elbows to score the finish.
