UFC 251 Predictions

Who will emerge victorious on the long-awaited debut of Fight Island?

ESPN

In the most stacked card of the year so far, we are treated to three title fights on our main card and some absolute bangers on the prelims and undercard of this month's UFC PPV.

UFC 251 has had some serious last-minute shake-ups, but in most people's opinion, it has only raised the hype for the first foray into the now-legendary Fight Island in Abu Dhabi.

Jorge Masvidal managed to settle his money differences to slide into a welterweight title showdown with champion Kamaru Usman in a bitter grudge match. Then there is a big rematch between former featherweight king Max Holloway and the man who dethroned him, Alexander Volkanovski.

In the third title fight of the evening, Petr Yan gets his much-awaited bantamweight title shot against legend Jose Aldo. This is after Rose Namajunas returns to rematch Jessica Andrade in a possible title-eliminator, and Paige VanZant takes on rising contender Amanda Ribas in what is looking like her final UFC fight.

There are a lot more exciting match-ups hidden in the prelims too. Here are the predictions for this weekend's bouts, starting with an exciting main event that is the talk of the MMA world right now.
