Taking the stage for today’s media festivities are welterweight headliners Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal. “The Nigerian Nightmare” will try to repeat his performance at UFC 251, where he kept “Gamebred” at bay for all five championship rounds.
Joining them will be flyweight fighters Valentina Shevchenko and Jessica Andrade. “Bullet” puts her 125-pound title on the line against “Bate Estaca,” who previously held gold at 115 pounds. Last but not least, strawweight champion Zhang Weili and No. 1 contender Rose Namajunas will also be on hand to discuss their five-round championship bonanza.
