The UFC will close out International Fight Week with UFC 276 on Saturday, July 2 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main event will feature Israel Adesanya defending his middleweight title against No. 2 ranked Jared Cannonier. The co-main event will be the third matchup between Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway for Volkanovski’s featherweight championship.

The early preliminary card starts at 6 p.m. on UFC Fight Pass. The preliminary card is next up at 8 p.m. on ESPN, ABC, or ESPN+. The big show gets started at 10 p.m. on ESPN+ PPV.

Adesanya (22-1) will be making the fifth defense of the middleweight title he won on October 6, 2019 from Robert Whittaker at UFC 243. “The Last Stylebender” is ranked as a top-three pound-for-pound fighter in Mixed Martial Arts. He has hinted that he will consider a super fight against light heavyweight champion Jiri Prochazka or possibly former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones if he wins Saturday. He is a -390 betting favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Cannonier (15-5) worked his way into a title shot by winning five or his past six fights. His most recent win came at UFC 271 against Derek Brunson when he knocked out the top five contender with a series of elbows in the second round that earned Cannonier a Performance of the Night bonus. Cannonier is a +320 underdog in the title fight.
