UFC 276 officials set for Israel Adesanya vs. Jared Cannonier, Alexander Volkanovski vs. Max Holloway title fights

UFC 276 is right around the corner and the NSAC putting the final touches on regulatory details.

At a Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) monthly meeting Tuesday, the commissioning body overseeing the July 2 event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas finalized referees and judges for the two title fights on deck. A commission spokesperson later informed MMA Junkie of the decisions.

In the main event, the UFC middleweight championship will be on the line as Israel Adesanya (22-1 MMA, 11-1 UFC) battles Jared Cannonier (15-5 MMA, 8-5 UFC). In the co-main event UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski (24-1 MMA, 11-0 UFC) puts his title on the line as he looks to make it three-for-three against Max Holloway (23-6 MMA, 19-6 UFC).

Check out below which officials were set for the two five-round bouts scheduled for UFC 276. Judges and referees for the rest of the card will not be publicly known until fight day.
