The premier fighting organization is back for more history-making, but this time it’s UFC 263 going down in Arizona.
The news was first reported by the UFC on social media and the double-title fight card will take place on June 12. Consequently, the promotion announced that tickets would be available for sale starting on May 14. With the intention of selling out the Gila River Arena in Glendale, it will definitely be an exciting card. After the first sold-out max capacity crowd in Florida for UFC 261, the electricity of a crowd is an undeniable energy.

The card is headlined by returning middleweight champion Israel Adesanya looking to defend his title against the surging contender Marvin Vettori. In the end, the card will be a big one since it features two championship fights.
First, the “Italian Dream” has a chance at revenge against champ Adesanya. Prior to the middleweight title fight, the flyweight belt is up for grabs and it’s a familiar fight on deck.
