UFC 263 is on the horizon and the promotion’s return to pay-per-view events means there is an “Embedded” series of videos to follow along with ahead of the big fights.
Taking place at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona, UFC 263 is set to feature two big title fights and the third fight from the top of the bill will also be a five-rounder without any gold on the line.
In the main event, Israel Adesanya will look to get over his loss to Jan Blachowicz by defending his UFC middleweight crown against challenger Marvin Vettori in a rematch.
The co-main event features another rematch. UFC flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo will face Mexico’s Brandon Moreno a second time following their contest at the end of 2020, a Fight of the Year contender, resulted in a draw first time round.
Third from the top of the billing, Nate Diaz is due to fight long-time UFC welterweight contender Leon Edwards in a five-round bout – the first time that will be the case for a non-title fight.
Watch the first episode of UFC 263 Embedded below as the fighters get used to their dry and hot surroundings in Arizona.
