The fight will take place at the Miami-Dade Arena in Miami, Florida.

This weekend marks the return of the UFC to Florida as they bring their first event in the state in two decades to the city of Miami for their event at the KAKA Center. The main event features a title fight between Israel Adesanya and Alex Pereira.

In November, Adesanya was looking to maintain his position as the reigning champion of the pound-for-pound and the Middleweight division. However, his opponent, Alex Pereira, had other ideas. In the final round, he took the fight to the ground and delivered a series of powerful blows that forced the referee to stop the fight.

Due to his victory over Adesanya, Alex will now have to prove himself once more inside the cage. He’ll have to fight for the title again to keep it.

The co-main event features a local favorite, Jorge Masvidal, taking on Gilbert Burns, for the first time in the region under the UFC banner. This will be the former’s first fight in south Florida since he lost his previous three fights. With the title now held by Leon Edwards, Masvidal could end up fighting for a fourth time within the division.
