After weeks of speculation, UFC  officially announced plans to return to Yas Island in Abu Dhabi starting with UFC 253 on Saturday, September 26th.

UFC makes its triumphant return to Fight Island with perhaps their biggest event of 2020: Israel Adesanya against Paulo Costa.

They are both undefeated and knockout artists, so if the event fulfills its promise, UFC 253 going to be the Fight Night of the year.

Since UFC will also crown a new light heavyweight champion that night as Dominick Reyes faces off with Jan Blachowicz in the co-main event for a vacant title, this is a Championship Night for UFC.

Israel Adesanya vs. Paulo Costa *Middleweight Title Fight*

Dominick Reyes vs. Jan Błachowicz *For The Vacant Light Heavyweight Title*
