On Saturday, three UFC divisional crowns are up for grabs on the stacked UFC 259 pay-per-view. UFC championships will be defended in the light heavyweight, bantamweight and women's featherweight divisions, with a total of four current champions in action.

Light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz will defend his title against middleweight champion Israel Adesanya in the night's main event. In the co-main event, Megan Anderson will try to take the women's featherweight title off two-division champion -- and greatest female mixed martial artist in the history of the sport -- Amanda Nunes. In the first title fight of the night, bantamweight king Petr Yan will try to fend off the challenge of Aljamain Sterling.

All told, 11 fighters currently ranked in the CBS Sports UFC Divisional Rankings will be in action on Saturday night at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The card features five current or former UFC champions and three former title challengers.
