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!

Joining Bisping at the three-man commentary desk is fellow retired ex-champion Daniel Cormier, who will lend his expertise to play-by-play man Jon Anik. As expected, Bruce Buffer — affectionately known as the “Veteran Voice of the Octagon” — will handle fighter introductions.

UFC correspondent Megan Olivi will handle backstage interviews while Brian Custer, Anthony Smith, and Din Thomas hit the desk for the UFC 275 post-fight show. In addition, John Gooden and Laura Sanko will call the action for this week’s “Road to UFC” tournament with Justin Bernard serving as Octagon announcer.

UFC 275 will be headlined by the light heavyweight title fight pitting reigning division champion Glover Teixeira against 205-pound smashing machine Jiri Prochazka. Elsewhere on the card, defending flyweight titleholder Valentina Shevchenko puts her 125-pound strap on the line opposite surging Brazilian bruiser Talia Santos. In addition, former strawweight champions Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk run it back after previously staging one of the most insane female fights in the history of combat sports.
