Adesanya Issues Challenge to Detractors
Two titles are up for grabs at UFC 276 — the Middleweight Championship contested between Adesanya (-520) and Cannonier (+350), and the Featherweight Championship between current title holder Alexander Volkanovski (-215) and former champion Max Holloway (+164) in their third meeting.
Adesanya has made headlines recently with the brash defense of his record. In an interview with MMA Junkie on Wednesday following the weigh-in for UFC 276, the MMA specialist from New Zealand lashed out at critics who have accused him of using performance-enhancing drugs.
“When you’re great, they talk about ‘Tittygate,’” Adesanya said.
He also offered a monetary challenge to anyone who wishes to invalidate his legitimacy, offering to “give $3 million to anyone who can ever have concrete evidence” that he’s used steroids or any other banned substance.
Controversy aside, Adesanya is a gifted fighter who presents a difficult challenge for Cannonier and his 10 career knockouts. Injuries and sudden withdrawals from scheduled bouts have marred Cannonier’s UFC career, but he’s worked his way to the No. 2 ranking in the Middleweight class.

UFC Hall of Fame Class Also Inducted This Weekend
This event coincides with UFC’s 10th annual International Fight Week, and will also take place on the same weekend that the 2022 UFC Hall of Fame class is inducted.
Two legends of the Octagon will be honored with UFC Hall of Fame induction — Khabib Nurmagomedov and Daniel Cormier.
Nurmagomedov is perhaps best known for a brutal victory over Conor McGregor. He retired with a pristine 29-0 UFC record.
Cormier was a former Olympic wrestler who trained himself to be a champion MMA fighter. Cormier won both the light-heavyweight and heavyweight titles in UFC.
