UFC 251 Live From Fight Island Has Become A Super Card [AUDIO]
To be honest the card for UFC 251 already had the makings of a "Super Card" before the addition of the reigning BMF champion Jorge "Game Bred" Masvidal. However, it is must watch now. UFC 251 was already going to be super interesting due to the "Fight Island" aspect and three fights that have main event quality but Jorge Masvidal getting his first true title fight against Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman takes it to another level.
Masvidal and Usman almost fought on Radio Row in Miami, Florida before Super Bowl 54. So this is a fight that's been in the making since then. Below is the full fight card and the Jorge Masvidal interview from Radio Row this January.
