The Octagon returns to Houston’s Toyota Center for a 15-fight pay-per-view card topped by a middleweight championship rematch. In the UFC 271 headliner, reigning champion Israel Adesanya looks for a third straight successful title defense when he takes on Robert Whittaker, the man Izzy took the belt from emphatically back in 2019. The co-main event is a potential slugfest between heavyweight knockout machines Derrick Lewis and Tai Tuivasa. If this fight goes the distance then something horrible has happened.

There’s also a pivotal middleweight battle between contenders Jared Cannonier and Derek Brunson, with a title shot potentially at stake for the winner. Rounding out the main card are bantamweights Kyler Phillips and Marcelo Rojo, as well as lightweights Bobby Green and Nasrat Haqparast in what should be a thriller.
