UFC 287 poster released
Nearly 20 years after UFC 42: Sudden Impact, the UFC returns to the Miami-Dade arena with a couple of high-profile fights, including the homecoming of one of its biggest stars.
UFC 287 will see a rematch for the middleweight title between champion Alex Pereira and former champion Israel Adesanya, who will fight for the fourth time between the kickboxing ring and the octagon. And Miami native Jorge Masvidal returns in a showdown against Gilbert Burns.
On Wednesday, the promotion released the official poster for the ESPN+ pay-per-view event on April 8th. You can see the new image below.
Pereira knocked out Adesanya in the fifth round of their UFC 281 title fight, capturing the middleweight title in just his fourth fight in the octagon.
Masvidal arrives at UFC 287 in dire need of a turnaround in his career, having lost his last three fights, including a back-to-back title loss against former champion Kamaru Usman. In his last appearance, he lost a decision to rival Colby Covington. Meanwhile, Burns most recently suggested to Neil Magny to recover from a decision loss to Khamzat Chimaev in a Fight of the Year candidate.
