The UFC will be packing out T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night with their impressive UFC 276 PPV card, featuring two title fights. The main event is UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya taking on Jared Cannonier. The co-main is a trilogy fight between UFC featherweight champ Alexander Volkanovski and former champion Max Holloway.
It’s all bangers for the rest of the pay-per-view. Before the title fights are decided Alex Pereira, who defeated Adesanya (twice) in Glory kickboxing, takes on the ‘outspoken’ Sean Strickland. There’s also an appearance by popular former UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler. He fights Bryan Barnerena. Opening the main card is brash and rising bantamweight Sean O’Malley, who takes on Octagon veteran Pedro Munhoz.
The prelims are headlined by Brad Riddell vs. Jalin Turner. The prelims also features a fight between two of the UFC’s longest serving competitors: Donald Cerrone and Jim Miller. Highly touted prospect Ian Garry is also on the card, taking on Gabe Green.
The early prelims are headlined by Uriah Hall vs. Andre Muniz. There’s also former title challenger Jessica Eye taking on Maycee Barber.
Before any of those fights happen, though, the fighters need to make it through the weigh-ins. With two titles on the line, that means four fighters will need to be extra careful on the scales. No one wants to see another Charles Oliveira incident.
The official weigh-ins go live at 12 PM ET. You can watch all the action below, in video provided by our friends at MMA Fighting:
