One of the most appealing things about UFC is that Dana White keeps his fighters very active. While in boxing, it can be a year in between bouts for some of the top stars, in some cases even longer, in the UFC, the champions at the various weights put their titles on the line much more frequently.
That is certainly the case for the Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya, who will renew his rivalry with Marvin Vettori for the second time in the Main Event at UFC 263 on Saturday 12th June.
To celebrate the bout, DraftKings Sportsbook has announced that the site will run one of their popular special offer sign up deals for new customers, where you could win $100 in DK Dollars for just a $1 stake on the fight.

So, who is the fighter to back on Saturday night when these two rivals renew hostilities? We decided to take a closer look to find out.
Adesanya V Vettori 2 – UFC 263
Nigerian-born Israel Adesanya is the current UFC Middleweight Champion and he suffered his first loss when stepping up to light heavyweight to face Champion Jan Blachowicz at UFC 259.
After losing that unanimous decision, Adesanya will defend his Middleweight crown against Marvin Vettori, who arguably gave Adesanya his toughest test at Middleweight when losing on a Split Decision back in April 2018.
Since that loss, Vettori has got his career back on track with five successive wins against Cezar Ferreira, Andrew Sanchez, Karl Roberson, Jack Hermansson and last time out in April 2021 against Kevin Holland, the last two wins coming by unanimous decision.
Few will argue that Vettori deserves a chance against the man he pushed so hard three years ago. A tricky spell in his career, where he lost two, drew won and one just one of four fights between December 2016 and April 2018, he has certainly pushed himself into contention in the middleweight division.
That said, Adesanya remains one of the most talented fighters on the UFC Roster. Pound for Pound, he is rated the fourth best fighter in the organization, behind Jon Jones, Kamaru Usman, and Alexander Volkanovski.
Saturday’s bout should be a very competitive bout so remember to sign up using this offer to claim this great value DraftKings welcome bonus.
