As they say in the boxing world, someone’s “0” has got to go. This is the main thrust of UFC 253. The main event features middleweight champion Israel Adesanya against challenger Paulo Costa.
Adesanya won the title last October by knocking out Robert Whittaker. He then beat Yoel Romero in March in a highly disappointing fight by decision. Adesanya is 19-0 in his career and 8-0 in the Octagon, with all eight UFC victories coming since February 2018. Costa is 13-0 in his career
UFC 253 goes down Saturday, September 26 at the Flash Forum on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
