As 2022 draws to a close, UFC hopes to cap off another successful year for the company. Not only that, but the upcoming few months also look promising.
The company has several big bouts scheduled for January and February 2023. Before delving into the upcoming fights, here is a quick preview of UFC 281. The event witnessed two champions lose their belts in the headline matches.
Through submission, Zhang Weili was able to induce Carla Esparza to submit. The middleweight championship match saw Alex Pereira defeat Israel Adesanya in a similar manner. Although it will be challenging to live up to the hype of these fights, there are a number of intriguing battles scheduled for the next two months.
UFC 283 will be coming back to Brazil, making it the first return for the company since 2020. Brazil has produced several amazing fighters, and on January 21, the nation can cheer for their own.
The fourth match between Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno will be for the flyweight championship. The boxers have performed equally up to this point, so the audience anticipates a memorable match.
In terms of UFC 284, Australian viewers will be able to watch the fights live on their own soil. Since 2019 the country has not hosted a UFC bout, so the local fans are quite enthusiastic.
The organization has scheduled multiple matches featuring Australian and New Zealand players for the same. The contest between Alexander Volkanovski and Islam Makhachev, the current lightweight champion, will still be the main event. The odds at some of the best UFC betting sites would be interesting to watch out for in the main event.
Volkanovski has displayed incredible pound-for-pound fighting abilities while holding the title of concurrent featherweight champion. For the eighth time in UFC history, champions from various weight divisions are vying for the same title.
