The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is the latest pay-per-view (PPV) service and will be back late tonight (Saturday, June 12, 2021). And since UFC 263 features two title battles instead of one, it’s going to be a night of battles. The protagonist of the card is Israel Adesanya, who defends the middleweight belt against Marvin Vettori. In the joint headlining method, Daveson Figueiredo again defends his flyweight strap against Brandon Moreno. In further action, Nate Diaz returns after a long pause to take on Leon Edwards in a five-round welterweight scrap.
With the exception of Kelvin Gastelum and, of course, the light heavyweight Jan Blawowic, Vettori is the man who has done the toughest tests on Adesanya to date. The two men separated in their first fight in April 2018, with the “last style vendor” leaving with a very thin split-decision victory. A few years later, the two again realized they were hours away from the punch deal. This time about all the marbles.Oh, and there’s no love lost between the two, as there is hatred between both fighters Exponentially grown in the last two days And it only adds to the feud they have had for quite some time. But the time to talk is over … now it’s time to see what’s what.
Adesanya failed in an attempt to claim a light heavyweight title against Brahovic, but remains undefeated (20-0, 9-0 UFC) at £ 185. I haven’t seen many of Izzy’s ground games yet. It is very doubtful if it can be seen here. His bread and butter are an impressive division, and a former kickboxer will face the fight against Vettori. Has “The Italian Dream” improved since your first encounter? I’ve acknowledged! But so is Adesanya. In addition, Nigerian-born fighters face fierce competition compared to their opponents, so there is nothing new that Vettori can throw at Adesanya. Vettori had a chance to puncher and Adesanya showed that he could shake. But in the end, the champion isn’t too good and too skillful to lose the title.
Figueiredo and Moreno offered fans an instant classic in their first match in December 2020 and fought a draw at UFC 256 after five rounds of action.The consensus was that Moreno had done enough to take the throne of “Daiko”, but Brazilian bombers quickly pointed out that. He wasn’t 100 percent, He feels, is the only reason Moreno was with him. But as they are ready to get it back, each person will come to prove his worth. Moreno is out to show once again that he belongs to a big battle, but Figueiredo wants to prove that he is just a good fighter in miles. Figueiredo may have a little more power in his hands, but Moreno has shown that he can hang on his feet with those best of them. I’m very interested in this rematch for several reasons, but to see if “Daiko” raises it up a notch to prove that the first fight was a fluke. More so.
What’s the difference:
In fact, it’s a great card. So I don’t often complain here!
Original card vs. actual card:
After the battle between Nate Diaz and Leon Edwards was yanked from UFC 262 and placed here, UFC 263 gained even greater boost to complement the championship doubleheader. To make it better, the fight will be 5 rounds.
Karol Rosa was kicked out of the fight with Sijara Eubanks because of an eye injury. Eubanks will face Priscilla Cachoeira on July 24, 2021. Frank Camacho was kicked out of the fight with Matt Frebora after being involved in a car accident a few days before the fight. Instead of him, Terence McKinney will make his UFC debut.
As mentioned earlier, Terans McKinney will have the opportunity to showcase his work in the bright light of the UFC after accepting a late replacement match with Matt Frevola. McKinney has fought for the Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) and other regional promotions to break through the big league with three consecutive victories (knockouts in all first rounds). With him here, he’s ready to take full advantage of his opportunities against five UFC veterans. In addition, his fight will be removed in just eight days from his last outing on June 4, 2021. A great reason to add McKinney to the UFC’s roster is his “go out and get it” attitude. Indeed, all his ten victories were brought about by suspension, including six submissions and four knockouts.
Drew Dober is about to bounce off after winning a three-game winning steak in the hands of Islam Makhachev at UFC 259 a few months ago. He will face Brad Riddell, who won two or six consecutive wins in the Octagon. Eryk Anders also returns to light heavyweight action to confront Darren Stewart. The fight was an immediate rematch after the first fight in March 2021 ended in a “no contest” due to an illegal knee in favor of Anders.
Joanne Calderwood was just a few months away from the shot in the title of Valentina Shevchenko before the fight with Jennifer Maia proved to be her failure. After defeating Jessica Eye and bouncing back, she will now face long-time veteran Lauren Murphy (four consecutive victories) in the undercard. It’s a dramatic drop for Calderwood, but if you can win two straight wins, you can return to the championship conversation.
One of the card sleeper battles is between Movsar Evloev and Hakeem Dawodu. Evloev is a former M-1 bantamweight champion who has defended the title twice before moving to the Octagon. He won the first four battles under the UFC flag, extending Mint’s record to 14-0. That said, Daodu intends to fill his hands here. However, Hakeem is still on fire and has won five straight games, so he is doing his job well.
Chase Hopper aims to win two consecutive victories when fighting Steve Paterson in featherweight action. Hooper’s momentum slowed when he lost to Alex Caceres, but he bounced off well over Peter Barrett. In the undercard, Alexis Davis will be competing in the 13th UFC match against Pannie Kianzad, who has won three consecutive victories.
Opening the event will be a fierce heavyweight brawl between Carlos Felipe and Jake Collier. Felipe won two consecutive victories against Yorgan De Castro and Justin Tafa, while Collier alternated between winning and losing throughout his eight-game career in promotion. He is about to win against Gian Virante.
Who is in terrible need of victory:
Nate Diaz can take a one-year, two-year, or three-year break, suffer a defeat, and still have a big fight in the title battle when he likes. When you are the person who moves the needle, they are a perk. But in his last three years, he’s 1-2 years old, and even if he falls below 1-3, he doesn’t look good on his resume. Again, having a substar record never interrupted Nate’s path, as he still has what he wants when he wants. Still, by defeating Edwards here, we can aim for the title of Kamaru Usman. To be honest, I don’t understand. Losses, on the other hand, can undermine his earnings when he decides to return.
Level of interest: 9 out of 10
This is arguably one of the best cards the UFC has worn this year. See if Vettori has improved enough over the years to give Adesanya more power than he can (again) handle and defeat him from the top of a middleweight mountain. Also, Figueiredo and Moreno could offer another memorable brawl to fighting fans, as the flyweights will always offer, as is clear from the first match, even if they don’t get a lot of love from the promotion. there is.
And, of course, the other main attraction is that Diaz takes on Edwards. More than 1.5 years after Diaz’s last appearance, his bid to win the “BMF” title against Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244 was inadequate. But long breaks are nothing new to Stockton’s lazy people. And what do you guess?If he wins, he Shot with a 170 lb strap, He is an unranked division with a 3-2 inch career record. He’s also 1-2, 4-5 in the last 3 fights and 4-5 in the last 9 years, and hasn’t done much. Even approaching to deserve the title shot. Edwards, on the other hand, rarely participated in the championship conversation, and he won eight straight games, set a 10-2-1 career record in the Octagon, and lurked around the top five forever. It was. But that’s the world of MMA we live in martial arts today. Which raises the question: why is there even a ranking? What does this all mean?
In the battle itself. This is a victory for Edwards, written everywhere. Nate shows that he’s bundling punches, but it’s not enough to bring out the tech guys as crisp as Edwards. Diaz’s best bet to win this battle is to take it to a place where he has an advantage. I’ve never seen “Rocky” easily defeated. It’s a five-round battle, giving Edwards the time and opportunity to defeat his enemies. And that’s what I imagine happening here. Nate, like his brother Nick, showed that it was fairly easy to open. If Edwards could move his rhythm and find his range, I wouldn’t see it go far.
But shortly before that fight, Beral Muhammad, hoping for a rematch with Edwards, confronts longtime veteran Demian Maia, who is still on track after a long career in the Octagon. Maia has been knocked out by Gilbert Burns in the first round of March 2020 and hasn’t seen any action for over a year. Prior to that, he had three consecutive victories, including a submission victory over Ben Askren. As for Muhammad, his final fight with Edwards was judged to be a no contest due to accidental eye poke, but he has won four straight games.
Kicking off the main card will be an intriguing light heavyweight battle between Paul Craig and Jamahal Hill, the two men simply don’t like each other. Craig is 3-0-1 in his last four fights and stops Mauricio Rua on his last outing through a strike. Hill, on the other hand, is still undefeated 8-0-1 and has yet to experience a defeat in the Octagon. “Contender Series” Alum hopes to gain momentum following an impressive technical knockout victory over Ovince Saint Preux.
Enjoy the battle!
