UFC 259 will feature the most stacked card of 2021 with three championship fights taking place in the same night at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The event takes place Saturday, March 5.

UFC Light Heavyweight Championship: Current champion Jan Błachowicz vs. current UFC Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya

UFC Women’s Featherweight Championship: Current champion Amanda Nunes vs. former Invicta FC Featherweight Champion Megan Anderson 

UFC Bantamweight Championship: Current champion Petr Yan vs. Aljamain Sterling 

Rounding out the main card is a lightweight fight between Islam Makhachev and Drew Dober and a light heavyweight battle between Thiago Santos and Aleksandar Rakić.

The main event of UFC 259 is as close to guaranteed fireworks as one can expect. Adesanya (20-0) has been the UFC middleweight champion since October 2019. He has won nine straight in the UFC going back to his February 2018 debut. Blachowicz (27-8) won the vacant light heavyweight title with a second-round TKO over Dominick Reyes at UFC 253. The Poland native has won four straight, three of those by KO/TKO.
