UFC 259 Preview
There are three championship belts on the line Saturday night at UFC 259, highlighted by Israel Adesanya — “The Last Stylebender” — taking on Jan Błachowicz in the main event for the light heavyweight title.
In the co-main event, Amanda Nunes looks to improve her GOAT resume as she takes on challenger Megan Anderson as a heavy favorite. UFC president Dana White says Nunes looks better than ever — a scary prospect for the rest of the UFC.
“She’s one of my all-time favorites,” White said of Nunes. “She doesn’t care who she’s fighting, she’ll fight anybody. One of the sweetest people that you’ll ever meet, very, very easy to deal with, but once she steps inside the octagon, she’s an absolute savage.
“What’s scary about her right now is Dan Lambert, the guy that runs her team, is saying he doesn’t understand why but she looks better than she’s ever looked in this camp, and she was dropping guys in camp. So this is gonna be interesting.”
Anderson knows she’s a big underdog, but is embracing the opportunity.
“I don’t really think about it, to be honest,” Anderson said. “I just see it as another fight. There’s just gold on the line this time.”
The other belt on the line is in the bantamweight division, as Petr Yan defends his title against Aljamain Sterling. There’s been some trash talk, but Yan made sure to note he’s not getting caught up in it.
“I don’t have any conflict with him; I just want to beat his curly head,” Yan said. “To be honest, I’m not really noticing him, not even at the press conference. He doesn’t seem visible to me.”
