The official lineup for the upcoming UFC 276 event, set to take place during the promotion’s 10th annual International Fight Week on 2nd July at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada, has been announced which features a mouth-watering fight card including two title fights.
Reigning UFC Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya will make his fifth title defense against 2nd ranked fighter in the division, Jared Cannonier in the main event. Adesanya, who is on a two-fight win streak since losing to former Light Heavyweight champion Jan Błachowicz, is coming off of victories against Marvin Vettori and Robert Whittaker at UFC 263 and UFC 271 respectively.
The co-main event will feature UFC Featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski taking on former champion Max Holloway in a much-anticipated trilogy fight, which was originally scheduled to take place at UFC 272 but Holloway pulled out due to injury.
The event will see three more middleweight bouts- Sean Strickland taking on Alex Pereira, Uriah Hall squaring off against Andre Muniz, and Brad Tavarez locking horns with Dricus Du Plessis.
UFC 276 will feature two women’s Flyweight bouts- former Bantamweight champion Miesha Tate will face Lauren Murphy, while Maycee Barber will take on Jessica Eye. Fan-favourite Sean O’Malley has been set to face off against Pedro Munhoz, and the promotion’s stalwart and former Welterweight champ Robbie Lawler will face Bryan Barberena.
