UFC 261 Usman vs. Masvidal
UFC 261 Usman vs. Masvidal: Start time, how to watch or stream online and full fight card.Masvidal gets his rematch against Kamaru Usman at UFC 261.With all the hullaballoo around Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren, UFC 261 has really snuck up on us, which is crazy because it might be one of the most stacked UFC cards in history with three UFC title fights.At the top of the card, a rematch between current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal.
Usman defeated Masvidal in their first encounter in what was a fairly one-sided battle. But, given the fact Masvidal took the fight on extremely short notice (and the fact Masvidal is probably the biggest draw in the division) this contest is still a compelling one. Masvidal showed flashes of a skillset that could trouble a wrestler like Usman. This fight could be a close one. Certainly much closer than in the first.
The co-main event is perhaps the most exciting. Weili Zhang is UFC’s first Chinese champion and her last fight — against Joanna Jędrzejczyk — wasn’t just the best women’s fight in MMA history, it might be the best fight ever, period. The thought of her facing off against former UFC strawweight champ Rose Namajunas is a salivating one. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is another fight of the year candidate.
