Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) makes its highly anticipated return to Qudos Arena in Sydney, Australia, on Sat., Sept. 9, 2023, after a nearly five-year hiatus. In the ESPN+-streamed pay-per-view (PPV) main event, Middleweight roost-ruler, Israel Adesanya, plans to silence loudmouth No. 5-seeded contender, Sean Strickland, so he can get his hands on South African rival, Dricus Du Plessis, next.

We'll stockpile all the real-time UFC 293 updates, odds, start time, tickets, weigh ins, predictions, previews, video highlights, press conferences, winners, losers and much more from "Down Under" right here before, during and well after the ESPN+-streamed live PPV show concludes.
