The action is unfolding tonight (Sat., July 11, 2020) at UFC 251 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Flash Forum in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, as three title fights lead one of the biggest cards of the year. Whether it’s Kamaru Usman vs. Jorge Masvidal, Alexander Volkanovski vs. Max Holloway 2, or Petr Yan vs. Jose Aldo, the main attractions on this card are simply sizzling.
But before three title fights ring in the debut of “Fight Island,” the rest of the UFC 251 fight card will play out in dramatic fashion. From a rematch between two former UFC champions to a light heavyweight barn burner, the main card and “Prelims” will surely get the blood boiling.
We’ve compiled the best of the best below — with all video footage courtesy of UFC and ESPN — and will continue to share the action as it rolls in. Enjoy!
