UFC 276 Full Fight Card Lineup
The UFC fight card looks stacked this weekend. One of the most entertaining fighters to watch currently, the Nigerian-born New Zealander Israel “The Last Stylebender” Adesanya is going to meet the heavy-handed cage control/wrestling expert Jared “The Killa Gorilla” Cannonier.
Another fight this weekend that is drawing a lot of attention is the third clash between Max Holloway and Alexander Volkanovski. The majority of diehard fans believe that Max Holloway aka “Blessed” was robbed in the rematch. The UFC 276 press conference will be worth keeping an eye on as this trilogy matchup will show whether Volkanovski can pull off another victory.
Let’s take a look at the full UFC 276 PPV card.

What To Expect From Adesanya Vs Cannonier and the Rest of the UFC 276 Fight Card?
The answer is easy – tons of technical wars. It is hard to expect Adesanya to go toe-to-toe with Cannonier, as Jared looks way stronger. Max and Volkanovski are a perfect match for the diehard fans of tactical boxing and angle/stance change, just like Sean Strickland vs Alex Perreira. Taekwondo black belt Sean O’Malley will probably try to fight technically against right overhand specialist Pedro Munhoz, while Lawler vs Barbarena is the clash of two tough Octagon warriors out of their primes.
The UFC 276 prelims are worth paying attention to as well. Du Plessis vs Tavares could easily end in a KO, while Julija Stoliarenko’s armbar might be a serious threat to top control phenom Jessica Rose-Clark. Hall vs Muniz is a striker vs grappler match-up. Yet, the most entertaining battle on the preliminary card is the 170-pound war between the two legendary veterans of this sport – head kick expert Donald “The Cowboy” Cerrone and BJJ black belt and submission king Jim Miller.
This fight card is filled with entertaining matchups from top to bottom, don't miss it!
