UFC schedule 2021: Every upcoming fight including Adesanya vs Vettori at UFC 263 this weekend and McGregor vs Poirier 3 next month

There’s plenty of elite UFC action coming up over the next weeks and months as the world’s top MMA stars face off.

Conor McGregor suffered a shock defeat to Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 to kickstart 2021 and there’s been a host of thrills and spills in the months since.

McGregor headlined the Fight Island event in January but was stunned by old rival Poirier who claimed a brilliant TKO win over the Irishman.

Kamaru Usman then defended his welterweight crown at UFC 258 in February, seeing off Gilbert Burns in devastating style.

Jan Blachowicz defeated Israel Adesanya at UFC 259 where Amanda Nunes also defended her title and then Francis Ngannou became the new heavyweight champion by beating Stipe Miocic at UFC 260.

Kamaru Usman destroyed Jorge Masvidal in a hugely entertaining card at UFC 261 and now the trilogy clash between McGregor and Poirier isn’t far away.
