It almost feels like normal times are back for UFC. The MMA promotion is ready to depart its stint at home with shows at the Apex facility this week with its first PPV in the U.S. that will have a live audience in attendance since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. UFC 261 rolls into Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday night with a trio of title fights on the marquee. Atop the card sits a welterweight title rematch between champ Kamaru Usman and challenger Jorge Masvidal.

Usman is riding a 17-fight win streak into his rematch with Masvidal with wins over a who’s who in the 170-pound division. The champ has beaten every significant name put in front of him, including Masvidal, Colby Covington, Gilbert Burns, Tyron Woodley and more. Masvidal, however, is no slouch himself as the Miami native has spent the last eight years battling the UFC’s best. This will be his 20th bout inside the Octagon as he looks to finally reach the mountain top and win the gold.
