UFC 281: Official poster released featuring Adesanya vs. Pereira, Poirier vs. Chandler, and more

Israel Adesanya headlines one of the year's most anticipated cards.

The main event of UFC 281, which takes place on Nov. 12 at the legendary Madison Square Garden venue in New York, will see the UFC middleweight title going up against longtime foe Alex Pereira. Adesanya and Pereira have a history dating back to their time as professional kickboxers. Pereira had a 2-0 advantage against Adesanya in their series, which culminated with a highlight-reel knockout in the rematch in 2017.

Adesanya and Pereira have both won all 12 of their matches at 185 pounds so far in their UFC careers, with Pereira going 3-0 in the promotion and "The Last Stylebender" winning all five of his championship defenses.

Below is the official poster for their clash at UFC 281.

As part of UFC 281, incumbent strawweight champion Carla Esparza will face former champion Weili Zhang in a championship fight. Also on the card is the highly anticipated fight between former interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier and former Bellator champion Michael Chandler.
