GLENDALE, Ariz. – The stage is set for the middleweight title rematch between Israel Adesanya and Marvin Vettori in the UFC 263 main event.

After Adesanya (20-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC) and Vettori (17-4-1 MMA, 7-2-1 UFC) made weight on Friday morning, they had the final pre-fight staredown at ceremonial weigh-ins, which took place at Gila Rivera Arena, the same venue that hosts Saturday’s pay-per-view main card following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+.

Adesanya won the first fight with Vettori by split decision at UFC on FOX 29 in April 2018 – coincidentally in the same venue – and now both sides are searching for a definitive ending.

Much like their faceoff following the pre-fight press conference earlier in the week, the champion and challenger were spirited, but UFC president Dana White wasn’t letting them get anywhere close to each other.
