The UFC 285 card is set to take place tonight and fans are eagerly waiting for the action-packed event. This event will showcase some of the best fighters in the world compete for supremacy in front of a live audience. UFC 285 will feature three main events: Jon Jones vs. Ciryl Gane, Valentina Shevchenko vs. Alexa Grasso, and Brandon Moreno vs. Askar Askarov.

Jon Jones vs. Ciryl Gane:

The heavyweight division has been and will always be the glamour division of UFC, and Jon Jones’s entry into the heavyweight division has certainly raised the stakes. The former light heavyweight champion has made the move up a weight class and will be facing off against the rising French heavyweight, Ciryl Gane.

Jones is coming off a long layoff having not fought since February 2020 when he defeated Dominick Reyes. Gane, on the other hand, is coming off a victory over Alexander Volkov in June 2021, and has been on a roll since he joined the UFC in 2019.

Both fighters are incredibly well-rounded and have an arsenal of strikes, grappling, and wrestling techniques at their disposal. Jones, with his long reach and years of experience fighting at the highest level, is the favorite in this fight. However, Gane has shown that he is not to be underestimated and has the speed and athleticism to cause Jones problems.

Valentina Shevchenko vs. Alexa Grasso:

Valentina Shevchenko is one of the most dominant fighters in the UFC, having won 7 of her last 8 fights. She is the current women’s flyweight champion and will be looking to extend her reign. Standing in her way is Alexa Grasso, who is coming off an impressive win against Maycee Barber in February 2021.

Shevchenko is known for her precision striking and powerful takedowns, while Grasso has a reputation for her aggressive striking and impressive footwork. This matchup is sure to be a classic striker vs. striker contest with both athletes looking to showcase their skills on the feet.

Many pundits expect Shevchenko to retain her title, but Grasso is not to be underestimated. She has enough power in her hands and feet to finish a fight, and her speed and movement are enough to keep up with Shevchenko.

Brandon Moreno vs. Askar Askarov:

The flyweight division has become one of the most exciting in the UFC, thanks in part to fighters like Brandon Moreno and Askar Askarov. Moreno is the current flyweight champion and will be defending his title for the first time against Askarov, who is coming off a win against Alexandre Pantoja in January 2021.

Moreno has a solid all-around game, with a good mix of striking and grappling skills. Askarov, on the other hand, is known for his grappling prowess and has a record of 14 wins, 0 losses and 1 draw, with most of those victories coming via submission.

This matchup will be exciting for fans of grappling, as both fighters are highly skilled on the ground. However, Moreno has shown that he is not a one-dimensional fighter, and his striking has improved significantly in recent years. Askarov will have to watch out for Moreno’s striking, while Moreno will have to be wary of Askarov’s submission game.

Other Fights:

The UFC 285 card will also feature several other exciting fights, including a bantamweight bout between Pedro Munhoz and Jimmie Rivera, a middleweight contest between Omari Akhmedov and Brad Tavares, and a lightweight clash between Clay Guida and Rafael Fiziev.

Munhoz and Rivera will both be looking to bounce back from recent losses, making this matchup an important fight for both fighters. Akhmedov and Tavares are both experienced fighters with a lot of UFC fights under their belts, with the winner likely moving up the rankings in the middleweight division.

Guida and Fiziev both have a reputation for being exciting fighters, with Guida known for his grappling and Fiziev for his striking. This fight has the potential to be a back-and-forth war, with both fighters looking to impose their game plan on the other.


UFC 285 is shaping up to be an exciting event, with some of the best fighters in the world going head-to-head. The main events promise to be entertaining, with each fighter looking to make a name for themselves and establish their dominance in their respective divisions.

The other fights on the card will also be worth watching, with each matchup featuring fighters with unique skills and styles. UFC 285 is sure to deliver on the promise of excitement and entertainment, and fans are eagerly awaiting the action-packed event.
