UFC president Dana White has shared the fantastic cold open for UFC 259 as we get closer and closer to fight night in Las Vegas.
There’s no way of getting around it – the event White has put together this weekend is absolutely stacked. From the early prelims all the way up to the three title fights, it’s easy to understand why people are getting just a little bit excited about what’s to come.
Ahead of the event, White has given fans an early look at the cold open for UFC 259.

The next few months seem to be preparing the UFC for one of their best years in recent memory and, by the time we get to the summer, the hope is that fans can once again come into arenas in their thousands.
But for the time being the priority needs to be UFC 259 because this event has so much going for it. At the core of that, of course, is the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship main event that will be contested by two champions – Jan Blachowicz and Israel Adesanya.
