UFC 263: Adesanya vs. Vettori 2 is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that will take place on June 12, 2021 at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona, United States. It won't be the first time these two men have met; before their championship fighting status, they clashed in a 3-round war back in 2018 – with Adesanya taking the result. Three years later, Adesanya has dominated his way through the division to become the titleholder, and Vettori hasn't been too far behind him.
Vettori moved to Kings MMA in California and has found great success in elevating his game ever since. The likes of Rafael Cordeiro have plucked the weaknesses in Vettori's striking offense to deliver a 2.0 version in the stand-up.
Mark Munoz and Markus Mollica can be thanked for refining Vettori's wrestling game, which has been a massive advantage for him during previous bouts.
Unfortunately for Vettori, he will be facing Adesanya, who is undefeated at middleweight and currently one of the greatest offensive strikers on the UFC roster. His ability to manage the distance between himself and the opponent is elite.
Along with a matrix-esque style of head movements and faints, "The Last Stylebender" could remain a champion for many years to come.
With that said, the key attribute that stands out to me is the durability of both men. Should either man's preferred game plan play out, I doubt they'll be able to finish the fight inside the distance.

Not a fight I'm betting. Vettori a pesky little fighter who is gonna try and grapple Izzy all night.

Whether he can do it for 25 min without getting caught with something is the question

Think the odds a tad wide considering Izzys deficiencies in the ground game and their first fight being super close (split dec) albeit a 3 rounder several years ago

If Vettori can implement his wrassling gonna be a long night. Vettori by dec is the value

But would much prefer Izzy to knock him out
