Setting the single-event record for most decisions in promotional history with 11, UFC 263 would prove to be a long night but one with many takeaways.

Starting with the headline act, Israel Adesanya would make a triumphant return to the middleweight division after a failed bid to become a double champion as ‘The Last Stylebender’ had too much quality for Marvin Vettori.

Making Vettori miss on the feet and stifling the majority of his attempts to ground the fight, Adesanya’s leg kicks and punching accuracy would see the Nigerian-born New Zealander walk away with a wide unanimous decision win.

In the PPV events second title fight, Brandon Moreno would claim the flyweight championship from Deiveson Figueiredo with a near-flawless performance.

From dropping the champion in the first round with a stiff jab until sealing a third-round rear-naked choke, Moreno would dominate the action with his speed and well-rounded skill set.

Elsewhere, Leon Edwards would almost snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory as 24 minutes of pure domination were nearly dashed and left for nothing as a one-two by Nate Diaz visibly stunned and wobbled him.

Successfully riding out the final 60 seconds, the shaky end to Edwards’ most notable fight will likely see him waiting longer for a title shot.
