At UFC 259, Jan Błachowicz defended his Light Heavyweight title against current UFC Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. This fight was headlined for the event. In the co-main event, current champion Amanda Nunes took Megan Anderson for the Women’s Featherweight title bout, and another Bantamweight title fight between running champion Petr Yan’s illegal knee kick disqualified him against Aljamain Sterling.
Not only that a highly expected light heavyweight bout between Aleksandar Rakic vs Thiago Santos fight was included in the main event. Thereafter, UFC 259 was not a good event of the year so far.
This was the second time the Nunes vs Anderson was set, at UFC 256 but Nunes pulled out her name because Nunes needs more time to return to the ring.
