UFC 243 will mark the biggest day in Australasian combat sports history, when Robert Whittaker and Israel Adesanya do battle at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne.

The October 6 showdown is for the undisputed UFC middleweight title and trans-Tasman bragging rights.

Think Bledisloe Cup - but fighting.

Adesanya stopped by Fight Club deep in the middle of his preparation and revealed a surprising tactic he plans to implement against Whittaker - or does he?

Brad Lewis and Stephen Foote also break down this coming weekend's UFC 241 card, featuring three tremendous fights, including a heavyweight title fight between Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic. 

Other tidbits include UFC's first venture into Uruguay, which included a couple of brutal injuries.

The location for Anthony Joshua's rematch with Andy Ruiz Jr has been revealed and finally, Australian independent pro wrestler, and MCW's own Adam Brooks, joins the show for the second time.
