Is UFC 276 a killer card with a ho-hum main event?

It’s international fight week and UFC 276 looks pretty stacked. Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway are gonna go out there and try to make their series one for the ages. Robbie Lawler’s gonna be there. Cowboy Cerrone’s gonna be there. Sean O’Malley. Uriah Hall. If you recognize any of these names it should be because they’re some of the usual suspects the UFC generally calls when it wants to pull off a blockbuster pay per view. This main event pitting Israel Adesanya against Jared Cannonier, though? It doesn’t feel overly critical to say hopes don’t seem particularly high for that one, right?
