MASSIVE MIDDLEWEIGHT MATCH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) makes its highly anticipated return to Sydney, Australia, for the first time in five years on Sat., Sept. 9, 2023, with a 185-pound world title fight inside Qudos Bank Arena. In the ESPN+-streamed pay-per-view (PPV) main event, Middleweight roost-ruler, Israel Adesanya, plans to silence No. 5-seeded contender, Sean Strickland. In UFC 293’s hard-hitting Heavyweight co-main event, No-6-ranked fan favorite, Tai Tuivasa, locks horns with towering Russian, Alexander Volkov (No. 8).

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

This matchup has been a long-time coming since the former best friends turned enemies a few years ago. Covington is the favorite to take care of business, but “Gamebred” is always capable of scoring an improbable knockout, especially against a fighter he’s so familiar with. It will be interesting to say the least and a matchup that should provide some clarity atop the UFC’s stacked 170-pound division.

In preparation for the biggest grudge match of 2022, UFC has released the latest collection of UFC 272 “Embedded” videos, which feature an in-depth look at fight week and last-second preparations. There has been a lot of back-and-forth leading up to this main event between “Chaos” and Masvidal so it wasn’t surprising to see that animosity trickle over into UFC’s vlog series.
