UFC 251 has fight fans bursting with anticipation over the best card put together since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. There is huge interest in the location. Back in April, president Dana White revealed the UFC had a mysterious venue called “Fight Island”. It has since been announced as Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

There are three title belts on the line in UFC 251, one of which has already been rocked by a positive COVID-19 test by welterweight Gilbert Burns. The UFC found a replacement in just six days and the main event is now Kamaru Usman vs Jorge Masvidal. Alexander Volkanovski also defends his featherweight crown in a rematch with Max Holloway.

Who will win UFC 251 Usman vs Masvidal?

What an incredible schedule of fights there are for MMA fans. Holloway will be determined to square the ledger with Volkanovski and we think the American is a big chance. Many also feel veteran Aldo is fortunate to get a chance for a vacant belt against Yan. It will be some upset if Aldo manages to become a two-division champion.

As for the main event, Usman has a highly impressive 16-1 win-loss record and hasn’t lost a fight since way back in 2013. He takes on Masvidal, his original opponent for this fight before contractual issues got in the way. Masvidal is 35-13 from his 48 fights, winning all 3 fights he contested in 2019. This is a tight one to call, but it’s hard to lean towards anyone but Usman right now whenever he enters the Octagon.
