Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will return to live, full arenas in the biggest way possible, courtesy of the UFC 261: “Usman vs. Masvidal 2” pay-per-view (PPV) event this Sat. night (April 24, 2021) inside VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.
As the title suggests, UFC 261 will be headlined by the 170-rematch between reigning welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and longtime contender Jorge Masvidal, who somehow convinced the promotion that a full camp will change the outcome of their first go-round.
In the UFC 261 co-main event, also scheduled for five rounds of action, women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko makes her return to the Octagon for a Jessica Andrade title defense, shortly after women’s strawweight queenpin Zhang Weili goes head-to-head with ex-champ Rose Namajunas.
Check out the “Countdown to UFC 261” video replay in the embedded video above, which takes a closer look at all three title fights.
