UFC just announced the fight card of one of the most anticipated nights for the fight fans around the world of UFC 261. The fight card is stacked with three title fights and one of the biggest rematches in UFC history. Here is the UFC 261 Full Fight Card.
UFC 261: Kamaru Usman vs Jorge Masvidal 2 (Welterweight Title)
The UFC Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman is going to face Jorge Masvidal in a rematch we’ve been waiting for ages. Both of them faced each other at UFC 251 where Gamebred stepped into this fight at just 5 days’ notice.
After the end of the five round, Usman won the fight by unanimous decision of the judges and now he wants to leave no reason to doubt him further. That’s why he offered full camp for Masvidal to face him in one of the biggest rematches.
UFC 261: Zhang Weili vs Rose Namajunas (Women’s Strawweight Title)
The UFC women’s strawweight champion Zhang Weili is once again all set to defend his title against the former women’s champion Rose Namajunas at the co-main event of UFC 261.
Weili put on a spectacular show against Joanna Jedrzejczyk last year and defended her title now Namajunas is going to be one of the toughest challenges for her and it is going to be interesting to see how she’ll defend her title this time.
UFC 261: Valentina Shevchenko vs Jessica Andrade (Women’s Flyweight Title)
The UFC women’s Flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko is going to defend her title against Jessica Andrade in the third title defense of the night.
Jessica Andrade is the only woman to win fights in three different divisions of UFC and Shevchenko needs no introduction inside the Octagon. This fight is going to be a match for the ages.
