UFC 276: Israel Adesanya vs. Jared Cannonier live results.

The UFC‘s International Fight Week always brings one of the most stacked, heavily-promoted and exciting fight cards of the year. That time has come once again, as UFC 276 comes your way tonight from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, featuring two titles on the line.

In the main event, Israel Adesanya puts his UFC middleweight championship on the line against Jared Cannonier.

Adesanya claimed the championship with a win over Robert Whittaker at UFC 243. Since then, “The Last Stylebender” has successfully retained the belt over the likes of Yoel Romero, Paulo Costa, Marvin Vettori and Whittaker. Adesanya’s sole MMA loss came when he looked for champ-champ status against then-light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz.

Cannonier has won five of his last six. He enters the fight off back-to-back wins, scoring a decision over Kelvin Gastelum in August before a knockout of Derek Brunson at UFC 271.

In the co-main event, Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway clash over the UFC featherweight title for the third time.

Volkanovski took the title in a unanimous decision at UFC 245 and then pulled off a highly controversial, come-from-behind, split-decision win over Holloway at UFC 251.

Volkanovski has since retained the title against Brian Ortega and “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung, while Holloway has pulled off wins over Calvin Kattar and Yair Rodriguez.
