UFC 263 might not have a location yet, but it will have two title fights.

UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya returns to his division after his attempt to win the light heavyweight belt when he headlines the June 21 event in a rematch against Marvin Vettori, the UFC announced during the UFC 261 pay-per-view telecast Saturday night. Adesanya defeated Vettori via split decision at UFC on FOX 29 over three years ago.

In the other title fight on the card, UFC flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo faces Brandon Moreno in another rematch. Figueiredo and Moreno battled to a majority draw in their previous meeting at UFC 256. It was a Fight of the Night contest and allowed Figueiredo to retain his title.

The rest of the main card is as follows: Demian Maia, who has won three of his past four fights, is slated to face Belal Muhammad on the last fight of Maia’s UFC deal in a welterweight contest. Paul Craig, who is ubeaten in his past four contests, squares off against Jamahal Hill in a light heavyweight fight.

Drew Dober also faces Brad Riddell in a lightweight tilt on the main card.
