The UFC’s first event at “Fight Island” is set to take place this Saturday night live from Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, and will be headlined by a new-look UFC Welterweight Championship bout featuring Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal.
UFC 252: Miocic vs. Cormier is this Saturday!
- Main event: Miocic vs. Cormier 🏆
- Co-main event: O'Malley vs. Vera
Usman vs. Masvidal was today announced as the main event for UFC 251 just several days after Gilbert Burns was removed from the fight card following a positive test for COVID-19. Masvidal, who hasn’t competed since his spectacular 3-0 campaign in 2019, will now fight the reigning welterweight champion on just six days’ notice.
The welterweight showdown will be one of three title fights that take place on the night. In the co-main event, Alexander Volkanovski will defend his featherweight title in a rematch with former titleholder Max Holloway. Before then, Petr Yan and Jose Aldo will also square off in a UFC Bantamweight Championship bout with the winner taking home the now-vacated title.
UFC 251 is a pay-per-view (PPV) fight card that is exclusive to the ESPN+ digital streaming service in the United States. The PPV main card starts at 10:00 pm ET and the only way to watch Usman vs. Masvidal and all other main card fights is by ordering the official UFC 251 stream via the official ESPN website.
