5 Predictions For UFC 251

What will happen on Fight Island?

UFC

The long awaited debut of the UFC fight island is finally here. UFC 251 promises to be a spectacular event with a strong main card packed with title fights and evenly contested bouts to kickstart this new chapter in UFC history.

Can Jorge Masvidal rise to the occasion against the odds and topple the aptly named 'Nigerian Nightmare' Kamaru Usman for the Welterweight title? It will be interesting to see if he has had enough time to prepare for this fight and whether he will even make weight.

This is not the only championship on the line in 251, with both the Featherweight and vacant Bantamweight titles being contested over in Dubai this weekend. It remains to be seen whether Volkanovski will be able to edge out Holloway again in their rematch and whether Petr Yan will be able to make the most of his first title shot against a true UFC veteran in Jose Aldo.

There are two other strong fixtures on the main card, which sees a rematch between former champions Rose Namajunas and Jessica Andrade of the Strawweight division. To finish off, there will also be a look at the other women's bout which sees Paige VanZant take on Amanda Ribas. All fights will include analysis and fight outcome predictions.
