The UFC’s big International Fight Week pay-per-view is set for July 2nd, and a host of fights have been officially announced or linked to this event over the past couple of weeks. Headlining UFC 276 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas is a middleweight title fight between reigning champion Israel Adesanya and Jared Cannonier, who’s done a remarkable job going from a former heavyweight all the way to his first title shot at middleweight.
In the co-main event, Alexander Volkanovski once again takes on Max Holloway for the featherweight belt. Volkanovski took the strap from Holloway in 2019, won a close rematch in 2020, and now we get the trilogy in the summer of 2022.
This is a deep card as you might expect, with notable non-title action including middleweight contender Sean Strickland against kickboxing star Alex Pereira, bantamweight sensation Sean O’Malley versus veteran Pedro Munhoz, former welterweight champion Robbie Lawler against Bryan Barberena, ex-UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate’s drop to flyweight against recent title challenger Lauren Murphy, and lightweight prospect Jalin Turner versus City Kickboxing’s Brad Riddell.
