Adesanya vs Pereira face off from the UFC Special Announcement 2023 video

The UFC special announcement 2023 has UFC President, Dana White, announcing some major fights taking place this year. Most of these were already rumored or seemed very likely, with a couple being signed already. The additional fights that are announced, make it obvious as to why this organization remains on top.

Below the video is a breakdown of the major events he announced, with their dates. It’s likely some of these cards will get changed up due to injuries and other factors. However, should even half of these fights make it, then mma fans will be in for some great action in 2023.
