1. Main Event: Jiri Prochazka vs. Glover Teixeira 2
The MMA association will be getting back to a recognizable setting, with a considerable lot of the UFC’s occasions occurring in Vegas. The latest pay-per-view occasion to occur at the T-Mobile arena was UFC 276, where Israel Adesanya and Jared Cannonier combat it out for the UFC middleweight belt.
One of the most supposed sessions to possibly be on the pay-per-view card is a rematch between Jiri Prochazka and Glover Texeira. The two light heavyweights put on a critical occasion in their most memorable conflict, with the Czech warrior winning by means of a last-wheeze submission in the last round.
MMAFighting has expressed that their sources inside the UFC have affirmed that the session is going on December tenth at the T-Versatile Field, yet no authority declaration has been produced using either the contenders or the association.
2. Robbie Lawler vs Santiago Ponzinibbio – Welterweight Bout
Several sources with knowledge of the contest confirmed the rumours to MMA Fighting on Monday. ESPN first made the announcement of the contest.
Ponzinibbio was forced to cancel his scheduled fight with Lawler due to a bacterial illness, which was recently scheduled for UFC 245 in 2019. Eight months after the incident, Lawler instead confronted Neil Magny, losing by a clear margin.
Lawler (29-16, 1 NC), a former UFC welterweight champion and MMA pioneer, has recently had some poor luck in the ring. Since losing the welterweight championship in 2016, “Ruthless” has lost five of his seven fights, most recently losing a Battle of the Night winning match against Bryan Barberena at UFC 276.
Prior to that, Lawler defeated Scratch Diaz via technical knockout at UFC 266.
Ponzinibbio (28-6) has recently faced similar struggles. After compiling a seven-fight winning streak that put him on the verge of a title fight in 2018, numerous injuries severely hampered his career. When he returned in 2021, Ponzinibbio was defeated by Li Jingliang in the opening round. Ponzinibbio managed to recover with a victory over Miguel Baeza, but after that, he lost two more matches in a row. At the age of 35, “Gente Boa” needs a significant victory to keep his chances of winning the championship alive.
3. Edmen Shahbazyan vs Dalcha Lungiambula-Middleweight Bout
Edmen Shahbazyan, a middleweight prospect, will attempt to recover from a tail turn at UFC 282 in December.
On December 12, 2022, a PPV matchup between Shahbazyan (11-3) and Dalcha Lungiambula (11-5) has been scheduled.
Shahbazyan has recently moved the action to Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas after previously practising at the Glendale Fighting Club, where Ronda Rousey spent her career. Following three straight losses against Nassourdine Imavov, Jack Hermansson, and Derek Brunson, the highly advertised prospect made that move.
The current 24-year-old competitor started off 4-0 in the UFC until hitting some terrible luck.
Due to his three consecutive defeats, Lungiambula is also in a must-win situation. Marc-Andre Barriault suffered a choice tragedy before being presented by Cody Brundage and ultimately eliminated by Punahele Soriano recently.

Nate Diaz vs. Tony Ferguson fight | UFC 279
Tony Ferguson and Nate Diaz, two welterweight finishers in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), will square off TONIGHT (Saturday, September 10, 2022) at UFC 279 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Key wins were those of Donald Cerrone (UFC 71), Josh Thomson (UFC 216), Edson Barboza (TUF 22 Finale), Rafael dos Anjos (UFC Fight Night 98), Anthony Pettis (UFC 229), Kevin Lee (UFC 216), and Edson Barboza (UFC 238)
Key Losses: Michael Chandler, Charles Oliveira, Beneil Dariush, Justin Gaethje, and Charles Oliveira (UFC 249). (UFC 274)
Keys to victory: Ferguson was the king of mixed martial arts (MMA) chaos in his peak. With repeated snap kicks and elbows, Ferguson can press a terrifying tempo and break his opponent’s will to fight. Ferguson may have slowed down, but that doesn’t mean he is without weapons.
Key Wins: Michael Johnson (UFC on FOX 17), Anthony Pettis (UFC 241), Donald Cerrone (UFC 141), Jim Miller, and Conor McGregor (UFC 196). (UFC on FOX 3)
Conor McGregor (UFC 202), Jorge Masvidal (UFC 244), Raphael dos Anjos (UFC on FOX 13), Ben Henderson, and Leon Edwards (UFC 263) are other notable losers (UFC on FOX 5)
Keys to Victory: Diaz is an icon. Although it has been a while since Diaz truly broke down an opponent, his pressure, combinations, and erratic Brazilian jiu-jitsu have worn out many opponents. I completely understand Diaz’s lack of motivation to prepare for Chimaev, but now that he’s up against a reasonable opponent, I can only hope that was just talk.
