About UFC 281

UFC 281 features two title bouts that no mixed martial arts aficionado should miss.

Israel Adesanya sits at a career mark of 23-1, and this match will be his sixth title defense opportunity. But he’ll have his hands full with Alex Pereira, whose career record sits at 6-1. Pereira may be a newer fighter, but he cannot be underestimated. He knocks out opponents at a rate of 83%, marking a relentless and hard-striking fighter.

In the women’s title bout, Carla Esparza (20-6) will face the only Chinese champion in UFC history, Zhang Weili (22-3). Weili is also a knockout artist, while Esparza wins the majority of her matches by outlasting her opponents. Who will walk away the women’s strawweight champion?

UFC 281 not only features two championship fights, but a highly anticipated lightweight bout between fan-favorite Dustin Poirier (28-7) and Michael Chandler (23-7), who has delivered action-packed bouts since entering the UFC last year. Also on the card, former UFC lightweight champion and future Hall of Famer Frankie Edgar (23-10), taking on his final career battle before retiring from MMA, faces rising bantamweight talent, Chris Gutierrez (18-3). Edgar is arguably one of the most respected fighters of the past two decades.
