Move over Lunesta commercial, there’s a new grim reaper in town!

So ... just how badly do you want to attend UFC 261?

The promotion is offering tickets for the April 24 pay-per-view (PPV) card inside VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla., the first time in over a year that stateside fans have been permitted to attend. But in order to purchase seats, you’ll first have to release UFC and Ticketmaster of any responsibility in the event you contract COVID-19.

Most of the legal mumbo-jumbo is the same spiel you would find regardless of who was organizing the event, it just serves as a reminder that we’re still not out of the woods when it comes to COVID-19 and you should proceed with caution when venturing into public places where close contact is all but a foregone conclusion.

UFC 261 will feature the welterweight rematch between reigning 170-pound champion Kamaru Usman and longtime contender Jorge Masvidal. In the UFC 261 co-main event, flyweight titleholder Valentina Shevchenko will put her 125-pound strap on the line against the rough-and-tumble Jessica Andrade. Rounding out the trio of title fights is a women’s strawweight showdown between current champion Weili Zhang and ex-titleholder Rose Namajunas.

Just make sure your final arrangements are in order before you go.
