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!

Of course, Oliveira will no longer be defending his UFC lightweight title after failing to make weight during Friday’s early weigh ins. The Brazilian champion was given extra time to cut a half pound, but he couldn’t hit the 155-pound mark and was stripped of his lightweight belt.

Luckily, Gaethje is still eligible to walk away with the undisputed UFC lightweight title if he’s able to defeat Oliveira so the UFC 274 PPV main event still holds some valuable importance. On the other hand, if Oliveira is able to take out Gaethje he’ll line himself up to fight for the vacant lightweight strap his next time out.
