UFC returns with UFC 284 this weekend. The event will be headlined by the UFC Lightweight title fight between Islam Makhachev and Alex Volkanovski.

Islam Makhachev vs. Alex Volkanovski Preview

This will be the eighth occasion in UFC history—following UFC 94, UFC 205, UFC 226, UFC 232, UFC Fight Night: Cejudo vs. Dillashaw, UFC 259, and UFC 277—in which champions from various divisions will compete for the same title.

If successful, Volkanovski will become the fifth fighter overall (following Conor McGregor at UFC 205, Daniel Cormier at UFC 226, Amanda Nunes at UFC 232 and UFC 277, and Henry Cejudo at UFC 238), the fourth man to hold titles in two different divisions simultaneously, the eighth individual to do so overall (after Daniel Cormier at UFC 226).

Interim Title Fight and Main Card

The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America featherweight champion Yair Rodriguez and Josh Emmett are anticipated to square off in a UFC interim featherweight championship fight.

The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes weltweight champion Robert Whittaker and former title challenger Paulo Costa were scheduled to square off in a middleweight fight. Whittaker was the former UFC middleweight champion.

Costa, however, refuted the promotion's official statement that the bout would not take place since he had never signed a contract. Whittaker vs. Gastelum on UFC on ESPN was supposed to feature the pair as the main event, however Costa pulled out due to sickness. You can see the complete fight card below.
