UFC 263 – Severe MMA Staff Predictions

As always, the Severe MMA team are back for another UFC PPV! A pair of championship rematches go down this Saturday at UFC 263 in Glendale, Arizona.

In the main event, Israel Adesanya defends his middleweight title against Italian foe Marvin Vettori, a rematch of their 2018 clash that resulted in a controversial (to some) Split Decision. Adesanya will be looking to underline his status as king of the 185ers, after faltering in his quest to become a double champion last time out.

Flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo will put his belt on the line once again versus Brandon Moreno in the co-main event. The pair fought to a Draw in a FOTY contender at UFC 256.

Elsewhere on the card, the MMA world rejoices as Nate Diaz returns to the sport going toe to toe with number-3 ranked welterweight Leon Edwards, in a five-round non-title fight.
