UFC 293 Adesanya vs Strickland fight preview

Back to fight in Australia for the first time since 2019, Israel Adesanya will defend his UFC middleweight title against Sean Strickland.

It's Adesanya's first fight since he reclaimed the middleweight title in April 2023.

Adesanya vs Strickland


Australia has delivered Adesanya some good results, as he won the UFC middleweight crown for the first time at UFC 243 in Melbourne.

In fact, that event still holds the crowd attendance record for a UFC bout.

It's the first time a numbered UFC event has been held in Australia since UFC 284 in February, and Sydney last saw one for UFC 127 back in 2011.

The undercard will also feature plenty of Australians, adding some local flavour to the bill.

On the flipside, Strickland has positioned himself strongly to challenge for the title, but the focus in the lead up has been more on his controversial comments and actions than his fighting.

However, we expect him to continually press on Adesnaya and give viewers a competitive bout to cheer on.
