UFC 259: Jan Blachowicz vs. Israel Adesanya fight card & live stream info.
We’re mere days away from an unbelievably stacked card in UFC 259, featuring three title fights and a loaded undercard.
In the main event, two champions clash as Jan Blachowicz will defend the UFC light heavyweight championship against UFC middleweight champ Israel Adesanya. Blachowicz won the then-vacant 205-pound title by finishing Dominick Reyes at UFC 253 in September. Adesanya became undisputed middleweight champion by finishing Robert Whittaker at UFC 243 before successful title defenses against Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa at UFC 248 and UFC 253, respectively.
With a win, Adesanya will become the fifth champ-champ in UFC history.
Speaking of champ-champs, Amanda Nunes will defend the UFC women’s featherweight title for the second time in the UFC 259 co-main event, taking on Megan Anderson.
Finally, the bantamweight title will be up for grabs in a highly-anticipated matchup between champion Petr Yan and challenger Aljamain Sterling.
