The next big UFC fight is finally upon us. Israel Adesanya takes on Paulo Costa for the middleweight title this Saturday at UFC 253.
After staging its last event in Vegas, the UFC returns to Dubai’s “Fight Island” for the heavily-anticipated title bout, which will be available to stream live on ESPN+.
Both fighters are undefeated and are seen as two of the biggest rising stars in the UFC today. The Nigerian-born Adesanya is the current middleweight champion, and is looking to defend his title against the Brazilian striker, Costa (a.k.a. “The Eraser”). The bout is set to be one of the more evenly-matched fights we’ve seen to date, and even UFC president Dana White has dubbed the Adesanya vs. Costa match as the “Fight of the Year.”
