UFC 239 is drawing near, and now the International Fight Week pay-per-view event has an official poster.
UFC 239, which takes place July 6 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, promises to be one of the biggest shows of the year, with two title fights atop the card. In the main event, light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will defend his title against Thiago Santos. And in the co-headliner, champ-champ Amanda Nunes will put her bantamweight belt on the line against former titleholder Holly Holm.
Of course, there’s also the highly anticipated welterweight bout between Ben Askren and Jorge Masvidal to look forward to, as well as a heavyweight showdown of ex-champ Junior Dos Santos vs. Francis Ngannou.
With all those big names, the UFC could’ve gone a number of ways with the official poster. But the promotion settled on just featuring the two title fights, and here it is (via Instagram):
I like it. I actually think it might be the best poster this year to date. They at least tried something a little different, you know? And the red backdrop makes the poster pop the way it should for an event of this magnitude.
But that’s just me. What do you think?
