The UFC has been on rock solid footing with their fight cards this summer, and that trend continues this weekend, with UFC 276. The annual ‘International Fight Week’ PPV is usually one of the biggest, best events of the year, and this one is no different. Headlined by a middleweight title fight between Israel Adesanya and Jared Cannonier, with the featherweight title trilogy between Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway in the co-main. Throw in Alex Pereira, Robbie Lawler, and Sean O’Malley, and it should make for a violent evening.
