The last time that Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal met in the Octagon was at UFC 251 back in July of last year at the UFC’s first event held at its Fight Island facility in Abu Dhabi. While Usman was originally scheduled to fight Gilbert Burns, he tested positive for Covid a week before the fight and was replaced by Masvidal at the last minute. Unfortunately for Masvidal, he lost to Usman by unanimous decision during the fifth round. Now the “Nigerian Nightmare” and “Gamebred” are set for a huge rematch and hopefully having extra time to prepare will give Masvidal an edge in this fight and a chance to take the welterweight title from Usman.
During the co-main event at UFC 261, the promotion’s first Chinese champion Zhang Weili will return for the first time since defeating Joanna Jedrzejczyk in March of last year to defend her strawweight title against former champion Rose Namajunas. The third title fight at UFC 261 will see former strawweight champion Jessica Andrade challenge Valentina Shevchenko. Shevchenko first became the UFC’s flyweight champion several years ago at UFC 231 when she defeated Andrade by unanimous decision during the fifth round.
Elsewhere on the card, Uriah Hall and Chris Weidman will meet in the Octagon for a middleweight bout while Anthony Smith will take on Jim Crute in a light heavyweight bout.

As the UFC has entered into an exclusive agreement with ESPN until 2025, the network’s streaming service ESPN+ is the only place where you’ll be able to watch UFC 261’s Main Card in the U.S. If you already have an ESPN+ subscription though, you can purchase access to the PPV for $65 whether you’re a monthly or annual subscriber. However, if you haven’t signed up for ESPN+ yet, the network is running a promotion where you can get the UFC 261 PPV and an annual subscription to the streaming service for just $89.98.
