It’s a battle for interim supremacy as No. 2-ranked Yair Rodriguez and No. 5-ranked Josh Emmett collide in the upcoming UFC 284 pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event TONIGHT (Sat., Feb. 11, 2023) inside RAC Arena in Perth, Western Australia. Whoever gets the job done this weekend “Down Under” is expected to unify the titles against Alexander Volkanovski at some point later this year, unless “The Great” defeats Islam Makhachev for the lightweight strap in the UFC 284 PPV main event (that preview here) and makes an immediate title defense at 155 pounds.
