The UFC is returning to the state of Arizona this weekend with what promises to be as exciting a card as they come.

UFC 263 is set to go down this Saturday, June 12, 2021, at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona, with a stacked card from top to bottom.

In the main event, UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya will take on Marvin Vettori in their long-awaited rematch to defend his belt for the third time. The co-main event will feature a rematch between UFC flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo and top challenger Brandon Moreno.

Despite two title bouts on the card, fight fans seem to be looking forward to the most is the the return of Nate Diaz to the octagon. The Stockton native, who 'lit up' the UFC 263 press conference and walked out as the star of the event despite saying the least amount of words, will face no.3-ranked welterweight Leon Edwards in a five-round, non-title contest.
