International Fight Week lands back in Las Vegas this year with a loaded fight card and a pair of title fights
All eyes of the combat world are on Las Vegas this week with the return of UFC’s biggest event of the year. International Fight Week is set to be capped off by UFC 276 on Saturday night with an absolutely loaded fight card set for the T-Mobile Arena. A pair of title fights top the marquee, but the undercard also features some legendary names looking to pick up big wins.
Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya welcomes his latest challenge in the form of a destructive knockout artist in the form of Jared Cannonier. The veteran from Alaska gets his first chance at gold at 37 after journeying through both the heavyweight and light heavyweight divisions before settling in at 185 pounds. Adesanya, meanwhile, maintains a perfect record at middleweight with his lone defeat coming in an attempt to earn a second title at 205 pounds.

Meanwhile, the first title fight to hit the Octagon on Saturday marks a long awaited trilogy when featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski takes on Max Holloway. Volkanovski enters on an amazing 20-fight win streak, including a pair of victories over Holloway in their first two meetings. Holloway, however, bounced back from those defeats to remind everyone why he is the top challenger to the title with wins over Calvin Kattar and Yair Rodriguez.
