Which Fighters Have The Most To Prove At UFC 251? [AUDIO]
History will be made this Saturday night live from Abu Dhabi. UFC 251 will not be the first event from Yan Island but it will be the first from "Fight Island". The distinction could be lost on some but Fight Island is UFC president Dana White's answer to restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Obviously White was going to pull out all the stops on this fight card to prove he could make Fight Island work so we have a monster event. MMA insider from MMAFighting.com Mike Heck Joins Levack and Goz to preview the card and discuss which fighters have the most on the line Saturday night.
Even though the main event of welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and BMF champion Jorge Masvidal will grab most of the headlines, there are as many as four former champions that can silence critics at UFC 251. Jose Aldo will get a chance to regain the title of champion in a Men's Bantamweight title fight against Petr Yan. Paige VanZant was once the darling of the UFC now"12 Gauge Paige" could be fighting t=for the last time in the UFC. Rose Namajunus looks to regain the women's strawweight title and Max Holloway wants his Men's featherweight strap back. Mike Heck previews those fights and more below.
