Another major PPV event is on tap for UFC as the promotion stays out west in Arizona for UFC 263. The PPV event sees a pair of title fights plus a fan favorite in the featured slot as fans head inside the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona. Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya will defend his title in the main event against top contender Marvin Vettori. The two met three years ago -- coincidentally in this exact same arena -- with Adesanya earning a split decision victory.







But that's not all. The co-main event features another rematch with a title on the line as flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo takes on Brandon Moreno. The two met last December and fought to a draw, thanks in part to Figueiredo losing a point for a low blow. Now, the pair of 125-pounders will run it back in the hopes of producing another instant classic


The card also marks the return of fan favorite Nate Diaz. The Stockton, California, native is back in action against arguably his toughest test in years when he takes on Leon Edwards at welterweight. Edwards is arguably the top contender at 170 pounds right now, but has had trouble getting opponents to agree to face him. Now, he could be one win away from securing that coveted shot at champion Kamaru Usman.
