When is UFC 253?  

UFC 253 gets underway in the early hours of Sunday morning, 27th September 2020,  at the Flash Forum in Abu Dhabi. It was recently branded Fight Island after the UFC took on Yas Island as a home during lockdown, and it returns once again after a stint in Las Vegas.

The main event is expected to take place at around 4am UK time and is the final fight of 11 on the fight card.

Israel Adesanya v Paulo Costa: Who is Favourite in the UFC 253 Main Event?   

Current Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya is the current favourite to win the fight with BetVictor pricing him at 4/7.

You can back Paulo Costa, who is ranked no. 2 in the world and has yet to lose a fight at 13/8.

The bookies are pricing a Adesanya knockout as the most likely method of victory at 6/5, although the Costa knockout isn’t too far behind at 9/4. Adesanya has a stunning knockout record, with 14 of his 19 victories being finished in this way.

Likewise, only two of Costa’s 13 wins haven’t come through way of knockout, making for an exciting fight that’s only going to end one way!

It’s going to be an excellent night of fighting throughout UFC 253, and a main event that could go either way.

Both have never come out as a loser and we could potentially see an upset, with the Costa knockout at 13/5 an incredibly tempting punt.
