It’s Rematch Day in Glendale, Arizona, as a pair of rematches in world title fights will headline UFC 263 at Gila River Arena on Saturday.

Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya will defend his belt against No. 3 Marvin Vettori in the main event, a rematch of a 2018 bout in the same arena which Adesanya won by split decision.

In the co-main event, champion Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno will meet for the flyweight title. They fought to a split draw in December in Las Vegas. As champion, Figueiredo retained the title.

For the first time in UFC history, there will be a non-title bout that is not the main event that will be five rounds. Nate Diaz returns to action in a welterweight bout when he takes on third-ranked Leon Edwards.

Also on the main card will be a welterweight bout between Demian Maia and Belal Muhamad, as well as a light heavyweight bout between Paul Craig and Jamahal Hill.
