A packed fight card featuring a pair of title bouts involving three of the world’s top 6 pound-for-pound fighters is scheduled for UFC 276 on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya, ranked No. 3 pound-for-pound, will defend his belt against hard-hitting challenger Jared Cannonier in the main event.

Featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski, who the UFC ranked No. 2 pound-for-pound, defends his belt against No. 6 Max Holloway, a former champion, in the co-main event.

Volkanovski has beaten Holloway twice, by unanimous decision in 2019 when he won the title and by split decision in 2020 when he successfully defended it. Volkanovski has won 21 streaks overall in MMA and is 11-0 in the UFC.

Adesanya promised a breakthrough win over Cannonier, a former heavyweight who is 5-1 in his six fights since moving up to middleweight.

Adesanya has made four consecutive successful title defenses since knocking out Robert Whittaker in Round 2 of UFC 243 on Oct. 6, 2019, to win the middleweight championship.
