The Fight Island series is less than a week away and it will feature four cards with some of the most exciting and highly anticipated fights. The fights will take place at the Yas Islands in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
The first event on the Fight Island instalment is UFC 251 taking place this weekend. The card features a staggering three title fights. In the first title fight of the card, former featherweight champion Jose Aldo will take on surging contender Petr Yan for the vacant bantamweight title.
The co-main event will feature a mouth-watering rematch between UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway. The pair fought back at UFC 245 and Volkanovski defeated Holloway via decision.
The main event fight is perhaps one of the most anticipated fights of the year. It features UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal. The pair were initially scheduled to fight on this card, but after negotiations failed between Masvidal and the UFC, the promotion looked towards Gilbert Burns as the replacement.
However, Burns tested positive for COVID-19 and had to be pulled off the card and UFC went back to negotiating with Jorge Masvidal for the late replacement. The deal was finalised and now fans are looking forward to a stacked card.
With fans excited for the upcoming Fight Island series, UFC has launched exclusive merch and fans are already loving it.
