The UFC has confirmed its location for the UFC 263 pay-per-view event in June that will feature two championship fights on the bill.

On Saturday, the UFC revealed that the June 12th pay-per-view will take place from the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona.

UFC 263 will feature UFC Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya (20-1) defending the championship against Marvin Vettori (17-4-1) in a rematch from April 2018, which took place at the exact same arena in Glendale, Arizona. In the first fight, Adesanya defeated Vettori by a split decision. Since the loss to Adesanya, Vettori has won five consecutive fights and is coming off a decision victory against Kevin Holland last month.

In the other championship fight, Flyweight Champion Deiveson Figueiredo (20-1-1) will meet Brandon Moreno (18-5-2) in a rematch from their excellent fight last December at UFC 256 that ended in a majority draw.

Tickets for the event go on sale on May 14th.
