UFC 261 ‘Embedded’ video blog (Ep. 5): Welcome to Jacksonville!

UFC 261 will mark the first live sporting event to be held at full capacity since the outbreak of coronavirus, a big enough to deal to produce the elated mayor of Jacksonville, where the “Usman vs. Masvidal 2” pay-per-view (PPV) event will be staged on Sat. night (April 24, 20121) inside VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena.

Just watch out for this guy.

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.
