UFC 253: Adesanya vs. Costa

Back to "Fight Island - Fight Island", UFC 253 on September 27, Vietnam time, will open a series of events at this venue with a mid-range belt battle between current Israeli champion Adesanya and challenger. Paulo Costa.

Location: Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, UAE.

After 12 years since UFC 98: Machida vs. Evans, the largest MMA tournament on the planet has just witnessed a title match that both boxers have not yet lost in their careers. Israel Adesanya (19-0) or Paulo Costa (13-0), who will lose their unbeaten number first?

Israel Adesanya vs. Paulo Costa will lead UFC 253 - The most awaited match of the year.

In the second Co-Main Event, the currently vacant Light-Heavyweight semi-heavy throne will be determined by its owner. The person who challenged the championship title Dominick Reyes will meet "Prince of Poland" Jan Blachowicz.

With Jon Jones announcing leaving the weight class and leaving the championship belt, this is seen as a golden opportunity for emerging boxers to touch the prestigious belt - when kings like Jones or Daniel Cormier are no longer in this class.

Jan Blachowicz vs. Dominick Reyes will be the co-main event of UFC 253.

In addition to the above two pairs, UFC 253 also witnessed 9 other pairs with 18 boxers. Although there weren't as many stars as the previous events, the main match alone made UFC 253 receive special attention from the audience.
