UFC 251 LIVE: Jorge Masvidal challenges Kamaru Usman for welterweight title on short notice

UFC 251 takes place on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi tonight and the card will be main-evented by Jorge Masvidal and Kamaru Usman, who square off for the welterweight title.

Challenger Masvidal took the fight on six days’ notice after original contender Gilbert Burns was forced off the card with coronavirus, and ‘Gamebred’ will be taking to the Octagon without his head coach Mike Brown, who also contracted Covid-19 this week.
