Kamaru Usman, Jorge Masvidal officially set as main event for UFC 251 after George Burns tests positive for Covid-19.
UFC 251 has a new main event and it’s going to be great!
After Gilbert Burns withdrew from UFC 251’s main event title fight against current champ Kamaru Usman at the last minute, everyone assumed it would be the end of the event.
But not so.
Dana White pulled a Jorge Masvidal sized rabbit out of his hat to setup what could be the fight of the decade.
Masvidal was cleared for UFC 251 after passing a mandatory COVID-19 test. Now the man they call Street Jesus will step in on less than a week’s notice to face welterweight champion Kamaru Usman in Abu Dhabi on Sunday morning (Saturday night stateside).
