It’s UFC 259 fight week and it’s safe to say that fight cards don’t really get a whole lot better than this.
There are not one, not two, but three UFC titles at stake and four champions competing this Saturday night. Headlining the March 6th even is light heavyweight king Jan Blachowicz against middleweight champ Israel Adesanya, who is aiming to be a simultaneous two-division beltholder. The co-main event is two-division women’s champ Amanda Nunes putting her featherweight title at stake vs. Megan Anderson, while the first of three title bouts will see men’s bantamweight champion Petr Yan versus Aljamain Sterling.
I’d say that’s a pretty good card, wouldn’t you?
As is standard practice, UFC 259 gets the Countdown treatment. At the top of the page you can get an in-depth preview of all three title bouts.
