UFC 251 LIVE: Follow all the action as Jorge Masvidal takes on Kamaru Usman for the welterweight title on Fight Island as well as two other title fights with Max Holloway, Jose Aldo and Paige VanZant in action
The UFC’s ambitious plans to host an event at the tropical ‘Fight Island’ are set to be realised tonight as UFC 251 gets underway in Abu Dhabi.
Dana White has been determined to see the organisation host an event on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, since the coronavirus outbreak disrupted the UFC’s scheduling.
And tonight fight fans will see no fewer than three title bouts take place with Petr Yan fighting Jose Aldo for the bantamweight belt, Max Holloway seeking to avenge his loss to Alex Volkanovski in the featherweight division before Jorge Masvidal takes on Kamaru Usman for the welterweight title.
Sportsmail will provide live MMA coverage of UFC 251 including updates from main card, with full commentary of Usman vs Masvidal.
