Can 36-year-old US MMA star Jorge Masvidal snatch the welterweight crown from undefeated champ Kamaru Usman? We'll find out when the pair stage a rematch of their UFC 251 encounter on Fight Island that saw the Nigerian Nightmare earn a unanimous points victory to keep his belt.

"I’m just so far ahead of these guys that I’m coming back around and I’m lapping them now," a confident Usman told reporters at this week's weigh-in. "But after this one, we have to take a really hard look and see what there is out there for me because it’s not these guys. So whether it’s crossing over and doing something else or maybe walking away, you never know.”

Meanwhile, Masvidal is convinced he can outclass his opponent this time around: "When I win the rematch, we definitely will go for the trilogy," Masvidal told ESPN. 'I will not go down in history 1-1 with this individual. It's just not going to happen... all my energy is focused on breaking Usman's face." Yep, there's definitely some bad blood between these two.

A stellar undercard will set the scene for Usman vs Masvidal 2. Valentina Shevchenko will attempt a record fifth defence of her flyweight world title against former strawweight champion Jessica Andrade, while China's Zhang Weili makes her first octagon appearance in a year when she faces Rose Namajunas.

UFC 261 live stream anywhere in the world using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant UFC 261 rights holders, you won't be able to access these streaming services when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN.
