Ufc 251 ppv

It is a good card but not great. Usman is a great fighter but not fan friendly. Volkan vs Holloway is great. Yan vs Aldo for the belt? Aldo has lost 2 in a row and is 2-4 in his last 6. That is not champ performance to me. Andrade vs Rose. This may be the best fight on the card. Ribas vs VanZant will be fun to watch but neither is a top prospect.

Welterweight Kamaru Usman (c) vs. Gilbert Burns [a]
Featherweight Alexander Volkanovski (c) vs. Max Holloway [b]
Bantamweight Petr Yan vs. José Aldo [c]
Women's Strawweight Jéssica Andrade vs. Rose Namajunas
Women's Flyweight Amanda Ribas vs. Paige VanZant

Gilbert is out of the main event. Tests positive for Covid19. Using Florida as a hub for travel isn't the best idea. We're averaging over 10k new cases everyday.

"The UFC 251 main event has been derailed by the coronavirus, as Gilbert Burns has tested positive for COVID-19 and is out of his bout with welterweight champion Kamaru Usman.

Multiple people close to the situation informed MMA Junkie on Friday night that Burns (18-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC) has been pulled from his fight with Usman (16-1 MMA, 11-0 UFC), which takes place next week in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. The fight is expected to be rescheduled at a later date. The people requested anonymity because the UFC has yet to make an official announcement.

Burns traveled from Florida, where he trained for UFC 251, to Las Vegas. The promotion is using the city as a hub to send athletes overseas to Abu Dhabi, testing them for COVID-19 before flying out to the Middle East. Burns’ test result came back positive, as well as his brother and cornerman, Herbert Burns, and coach Greg Jones. Herbert Burns later denied testing positive."

I keep reading updates on FB (take that how you want, lol) that supposedly 'they' are trying to make it work. Guess we'll find out soon.

Masvidal in. I'm more excited for this card.

Yep look like it's a done deal on super short notice. Usman is a bad match for Masvidal but we shall see.

Masvidal should piece Usman up on the feet and he has good takedown defense but on 6 days notice I don’t see how he could possibly keep it on the feet too long. Usman should eventually get him down and wrestle him for the win. Imo

Yeah, I think Masvidal will be tentative on the feet. Usman will back him to the cage with constant pressure and once there clinch and go for his TDs.

Masvidal will not tire out Usman. He must use footwork to stay in the middle of the cage. Maybe go for another knee like with Ben Askren. Usman is a pressure grinder and can get a KO/TKO by wearing people down with his long punches.

I will not buy this one. I may kick my own ass if Masvidal wins.

Betting odds Usman -260
Masvidal +200

There is not a giant gap there. Masvidal has precise punches and a well placed shot on the jaw......
