UFC 243 takes place this coming Saturday night, October 5th at the Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia and we’ve got the full fight card for you below.
In the main event of the evening there’s a battle for undisputed middleweight title status as current champion Robert Whittaker squares up against interim beltholder Israel Adesanya.
In the co-main event Al Iaquinta will be looking to get back to winning ways against New Zealand’s Dan Hooker, who has won five of his last six fights.
Australia’s own Tai Tuivasa is also in action hoping to shake off a two-fight losing streak when he fights Sergey Spivak.
Meanwhile, at welterweight, New Zealander Luke Jumeau seeks his third win in four UFC fights against Dhiego Lima, who is coming off back-to-back victories.
Opening up the main card was supposed to be a fight between Holly Holm and Raquel Pennington, but Holm pulled out injured a few days ago and as yet it’s not been confirmed which preliminary card fight will now step up into the main card spotlight.
