The main event sees Jared Cannonier going after Israel Adesanya’s middleweight title, while the co-main pits featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski against Max Holloway for the third time.
Headliners Adesanya and Cannonier are already throwing shots at one another. On his YouTube channel, Adesanya predicted a devastating win, comparing the upcoming fight to Anderson Silva’s victory over Forrest Griffin in UFC 101: “This is going to be spectacular. Think UFC 101, Anderson Silva vs. Forrest Griffin. Like, I’m just going to be in the zone. I don’t care – stay tuned.” Cannonier responded via Submission Radio, saying, “[Adesanya is] high in confidence, he’s been that guy for a long time so I can’t knock him for saying what he says. But no … hell no.”
Besides Adesanya vs. Cannonier and Volkanovski vs. Holloway, the UFC 276 fight card is stacked. Former women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate is taking on Lauren Murphy — the No. 3-ranked women’s flyweight UFC fighter — and Sean O’Malley will put on a show against Pedro Munhoz in a men’s bantamweight bout.
But even the UFC 276 prelims alone are worth watching: MMA legend Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone has just been announced on short notice to fight Jim Miller in the early prelims of UFC 276. A fan favorite, this will be Ceronne’s 55th professional MMA fight.
