Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski will defend his 145-pound title against top division contender Brian Ortega in the UFC 266 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, scheduled for five rounds TONIGHT (Sat., Sept. 25, 2021) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Volkanovski (22-1) captured the featherweight crown from Max Holloway at UFC 245 back in late 2019, then defended it against “Blessed” in a closely-contested rematch at UFC 251 the following summer. Ortega (15-1, 1 NC) suffered the first defeat of his professional career in a lopsided loss to Holloway at UFC 231, but showed massive improvement against Chan Sung Jung at UFC Fight Island 6 to score another shot at the 145-pound title.

Check out their fight video preview embedded above.
