On September 10, the strongest league in the world will return to Australia with the UFC 293 tournament, which will be held in Sydney.
UFC President Dana White officially announced the numbered event, however, did not specify who will head the Australian show.
Earlier, the head of the organization said that the reigning UFC middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya, who will meet the winner of the challenger fight between Robert Whittaker and Dricus Du Plessis, scheduled for July 8, will hold another title defense in Australia. If this plan is still in place, the challenger will be at a huge disadvantage as he will only have two months to recover and prepare for a title fight.
Recall that Israel Adesanya regained the UFC championship belt in April, knocking out Alex Pereira in an immediate rematch, which means that the Nigerian, having had a good rest, can prepare for the title defense in a comfortable mode for almost four months.
