UFC 263 is getting more exciting as the pre-match and stare downs for the fight night cards took place at the Gila River Arena, in Arizona.
The main event between Israel Adesanya and Marvin Vettori was the pick of the bunch as both fighters traded words during the press conference.
The most interesting part of the cross-interview while the trash talk was going on between both fighters was when the Italian Dream told the Last Style Bender “Don’t let me in speak the Nigerian language”.
And Izzy responded immediately in Yoruba dialect on UFC YouTube: “Ma gba e lese aya e lenu, iwo olodi yi,” which means ‘I’m going to hit you in the mouth, you dull brain.
The fight will be Israel’s first after moving to the light heavyweight division and recording his first MMA loss to Jan Blachowicz.
Vettori being a wrestler believes he can also pull an upset in the middleweight division having won five straight fights since his loss to Izzy in a majority decision back in 2018.
On the other hand, the Broken Native promises the fight will not o the distance like the first and that he would score a second-round knockout over the Italian.
The co-main event will see Deiveson Figueiredo defend his flyweight belt for the second time against Brandon Moreno.
The first clash ended in majority draw as the bout was regarded as the best flyweight contest in UFC's history by the company's president Dana White.
Nate Diaz and Leon Edward will also be among the five-round contest at UFC 263 and the winner could be the next challenger for Kamaru Usman's welterweight championship.
