Will Joe Rogan be at UFC 273?

As a result, Daniel Cormier and Michael Bisping will go finish their homework.

CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLE-DIP! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to “The Fight Mecca,” Madison Square Garden in New York, N.Y., on Sat., Nov. 12, 2022, featuring two highly-anticipated championship showdowns. In UFC 281’s pay-per-view (PPV) main event, Middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya, will look to settle the score with former kickboxing foe and No. 5-seeded contender, Alex Pereira. In the ESPN+-streamed PPV co-main event, women’s Strawweight champion, Carla Esparza, intends to defend her newly-won title for the first time against former champion and No. 2-ranked contender, Zhang Weili.

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

That’s according to a report from MMA Junkie, which has Megan Olivi serving as this weekend’s roving reporter, while former UFC fighters Din Thomas and Alan Jouban cozy up to Anik for desk analysis. As usual, longtime “Veteran Voice of the Octagon,” Bruce Buffer, will handle the in-cage announcing in “The Sunshine State.”

UFC 273 will be headlined by the featherweight title fight between reigning division champion Alexander Volkanovski and top 145-pound contender Chan Sung Jung. In the UFC 273 co-main event, current bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling defends his 145-pound strap against bitter rival and ex-division kingpin Petr Yan.
