UFC will not have any fight at Apex Center this week. Instead, the T-Mobile Arena will host UFC 266 featuring Alexander Volkanovski vs Brian Ortega as the main event. Besides, Valentina Shevchenko vs. Lauren Murphy and Nick Diaz vs. Robbie Lawler fights will also feature as co-main event.
Volkanovski will return to the octagon to defend his featherweight title. Although he is unbeaten in UFC, his last defense against Max Holloway was almost close at 254.
Volkanovski won the title at UFC 251 by defeating Holloway. He will join the octagon with a 22-1 record and the fight at UFC 266 will be his second title defense.
On the other hand, the next fight will be Ortega’s second title-contending fight. Previously, he lost to Holloway at UFC 231 for the featherweight title fight. But, Ortega was scheduled to get his title fight at UFC 260, but it was postponed due to Volkanovski’s COVID-19. Hence, the fight got delayed by six months.
