(VIDEO) UFC 263: Champion Adesanya Looks Dehydrated – One Fighter Misses Weight

✔ UFC 263 Weigh-in ✔ Figueiredo weighed with only 40 seconds to spare

Tomorrow, June 12th, it’s time for UFC 263: Adesanya vs. Vettori 2 which will take place at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona. It’s a star – studded event where UFC middleweight champion Israel “The Last Stylebender” Adesanya defends his belt in a rematch against Marvin “The Italian Dream” Vettori in the main event.

Their first bout took place in April 2018 and was Adesanya’s second UFC fight. It was a fight that went back and forth but in the end it was “The Last Stylebender” who managed to take home the victory granted by the judges via a split decision.

In the co-main event, we get to see another high-profile title defense where flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo takes on Brandon Moreno and it will be the second time the talented flightweights scrap. They met earlier in December last year and the match ended in a draw!

Figueiredo weighed in just in time, only 40 seconds left on the clock and looked really dry!

We also get to see Nate Diaz back in the Octagon as he takes on the third-ranked Leon Edwards in an exciting welterweight bout!
