The rematch between undisputed champion Israel Adesanya and Marvin Vettori headlines a stellar fight day in UFC 263. Here's how to watch.

"I'll see you again, I'll see you again," undisputed middleweight champion Israel Adesanya said to Marvin Vettori after defeating him in their first bout in April 2018. In UFC 263, that pledge comes true when Adesanya defends his middleweight crown against Vettori once more.

Vettori believes he won that fight and is ready to prove himself to Nigerian-born Kiwi Adesanya and the world in a rematch that headlines an awesome card for UFC 263.

The middleweight crown is not the only title up for grabs in UFC 263, nor is the Adesanya-Vettori rematch the only anticipated rematch of the event. In fact, it may not even be the most anticipated rematch on the card.

Another rematch between Deiveson "Deus da Guerra (God of War)" Figueiredo and Brandon "The Assassin Baby" Moreno, who meet to decide the UFC Flyweight Championship, is also garnering plenty of attention. It comes 6 months after their incredible draw in one of the greatest fights in UFC history at UFC 256.

Add Nate Diaz's return to the Octagon to the card and you have a must-watch day of UFC action.

Who will win Adesanya vs Vettori 2?

The first Adesanya-Vettori fight could have gone either way and Vettori has wanted the chance for revenge ever since. His form and class have been on display since that decision went against him. He has gone on a 5-fight winning streak and taken to calling himself "the most complete fighter" in all of UFC. Vettori also says a title is his destiny. This is his first chance to make it a reality.

For his part, Adesanya says he dominated Vettori for much of their first bout and claims he is a much better fighter now than he was back then. There'll be no doubt about the result this time, Adesanya says.

Adesanya lost his last fight, a step-up in weight, against the UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Błachowicz, the first loss of his career. The fight went all the way and, despite the unanimous decision against him, Adesanya has proven time and time again he is a better fighter in 2021 than when he fought Vettori in 2018.

Since winning the middleweight title over Robert Whittaker in UFC 243, he has successfully defended the belt against top contenders Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa. It's a tough call given how close the last battle against this pair was, so in a toss of the coin we're backing "The Last Stylebender". That's Israel Adesanya for those who aren't as knowledgeable about UFC nicknames as we are.
