The UFC has five title fights spread out through the month of March alone, and three of them are atop UFC 259 on March 6th. In the headliner, light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz makes his first title defense against middleweight champ Israel Adesanya, who’s looking to become the UFC’s latest champ-champ. The co-main is a women’s featherweight title defense for Amanda Nunes against Megan Anderson, while men’s bantamweight champion Petr Yan puts his belt on the line versus Aljamain Sterling.

This is a deep card with so many great fights. Dominick Cruz versus Casey Kenney is fascinating, as is Drew Dober against Islam Makhachev. There’s also Aleksandar Rakic taking on former light heavyweight title challenger Thiago Santos if you’re not satisfied enough. Or what about rising flyweight contender Askar Askarov against Joseph Benavidez?
