UFC heads to Abu Dhabi throughout July, as Fight Island is finally unveiled to the world with four unbelivable fight cards to devour, beginning with UFC 251 this Saturday.

Headlining the first of four cards from Yas Island in the Middle East, welterweight king Kamaru Usman defends his championship against arch-rival Jorge Masvidal.

The Nigerian Nightmare is on a 15-fight win streak and comes into the bout having stopped arch nemesis Colby Covington in emphatic fashion.

However, he can ill-afford to overlook the returning Masvidal, who has stormed to victory in each of his last three fights, as the two look to settle a score.
