The Ultimate Fighting Championship closes out April with a pay-per-view stacked with three world title fights on Saturday. UFC 261: Usman vs. Masvidal 2 takes place at the VyStar Veterans Arena in Jacksonville, Fla. in front of a sold out crowd. It’s the first event to host an indoor capacity crowd in more than a year due to the COVID-19 lockedowns and restrictions.
Headlining the event is the welterweight title bout between champion Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal in a rematch. In the co-main event, strawweight champion Zhang Weili takes on former champion Rose Namajunas while women’s flyweight titleholder Valentina Shevchenko meets former strawweight champion Jessica Andrade.
