The UFC has three championships on the line Saturday.

UFC 259 takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and early prelims on ESPN+.

In the UFC 259 main event, middleweight champion Israel Adesanya (20-0 MMA, 9-0 UFC) moves to light heavyweight to challenge champion Jan Blachowicz (27-8 MMA, 10-5 UFC) in an attempt to become a two-division champion. Women’s dual champ Amanda Nunes (20-4 MMA, 13-1 UFC) defends her featherweight title against Megan Anderson (10-4 MMA, 3-2 UFC). Also, bantamweight titleholder Petr Yan (15-1 MMA, 7-0 UFC) makes his first defense against Aljamain Sterling (19-3 MMA, 11-3 UFC).

The fourth episode of “Embedded” follows all the big stars who will compete at UFC 259. Here’s the UFC’s description from YouTube:
