Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman (18-1 MMA, 13-0 UFC) rematches Jorge Masvidal (35-14 MMA, 12-7 UFC) in the main event, women’s flyweight champ Valentina Shevchenko (20-3 MMA, 9-2 UFC) puts her belt on the line against Jessica Andrade (21-8 MMA, 12-6 UFC) in the co-main event, and strawweight queen Zhang Weili (21-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC) returns against Rose Namajunas (9-4 MMA, 7-3 UFC) in the third title bout.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, UFC 261 will mark the first time in more than 13 months that the promotion will attempt to fill an arena, and naturally, that news garnered the attention of the MMA and sports world. Minecraft wii u.
