UFC and ESPN have announced what’s on paper a huge lineup for UFC 259, which currently boasts no less than three UFC title bouts. The March ESPN+ pay-per-view card is slated to feature middleweight champ Israel Adesanya challenging light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz for the 205-pound title, Petr Yan defending his bantamweight title against Aljamain Sterling, and finally, Amanda Nunes defending the women’s featherweight title against Megan Anderson.

UFC 259 is scheduled to take place on Saturday, March 6 and will be broadcast live on ESPN+. UFC has not yet confirmed a venue and city yet for the event. Due to the ongoing global pandemic, the UFC has been holding events that are closed to the general public at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada or the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi.
