With three title bouts to go around, there is no shortage of fights to look forward to Saturday at UFC 261.
All three challengers also are the betting underdogs at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and early prelims on ESPN+.
Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman (18-1 MMA, 13-0 UFC) meets Jorge Masvidal (35-14 MMA, 12-7 UFC) in a rematch. Usman is a -400 favorite at BetMGM.
Women’s strawweight champ Zhang Weili (21-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC) nearly is a 2-1 favorite over former champ Rose Namajunas (9-4 MMA, 7-3 UFC) in the co-feature. And women’s flyweight champ Valentina Shevchenko (20-3 MMA, 9-2 UFC) is a 4-1 favorite against challenger Jessica Andrade (21-8 MMA, 12-6 UFC).
