Fans are back tonight at the UFC and Dana White has served up what proves to be a cracker as Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal go head-to-head once again for the welterweight championship. The pair clashed last summer when The Nigerian Nightmare came out on top on the scorecards by unanimous decision after the bout when the distance.
Now Usman is looking to continue his stunning winning streak that has seen him win his last 17 fights.
He was last in action back in February at UFC 258, when he successfully stopped Gilbert Burns in Las Vegas.
But now Usman heads to Jacksonville, Florida to defend his belt once again but this time around there will be 15,000 supporters in attendance.
This will be Masvidal’s first outing since his defeat to Usman last summer and ‘Gamebred’ will be desperate to execute revenge to prove he is the best welterweight on the planet.
Elsewhere on the card, Valentina Schevcheko defends her flyweight title against Jessica Andrade.
Zhang Weili, who played her part in arguably the greatest women’s fight of all time with Joanna Jedrzejczyk, is also in action as she takes on former titlist Rose Namajunas.
