UFC 261 - Usman vs Masvidal II - 4/24/21

That's right! We got three title fights on the line tonight and the main card should be a good one. Jorge Masvidal is going up against Kamaru Usman for the second time and it will be interesting to see how the BMF can do with a full camp this time.

Valentina Shevchenko looks to defend her flyweight crown against Jessica Andrade. That promises to be a good one as well since Shevchenko has been so dominant against every fighter not named Amanda Nunes.

Rounding out the trifecta we have Chinese superstar Weili Zhang defending her belt against former champ, Rose Namajunas.

The preliminary card also looks like it's going to be a good one. Alex Oliveira takes on Randy Brown in the feature prelim slot which should deliver. The early prelim card leaves a bit to be desired but that's not unexpected with a card that has 3 title fights on it. Take a look at the lineup below!

On a personal note, I just got off vacation and have had no time to fully research this card for predictions. And since I'd never recommend a bet that I - A) wasn't placing as well and B) haven't researched thoroughly - I'm gonna pass on betting tonight's card. I do think that all three champions retain their belts but so does Vegas (all 3 champs are favorites and 2 of them are monster favorites). So, enjoy the card and we'll be back next week with full breakdowns, predictions, and betting advice!

Ever since renting my first UFC VHS at my local video store, I’ve been in love with the sport of MMA. I’ve watched every single fight that has ever taken place under the UFC banner over the past 25 years. Once I started doing incredibly well in fantasy leagues, I realized I could utilize my skills in fight analytics to make a profit on betting. My obsession with researching every aspect of a fight gave me a real edge in finding value. Since then, it's been one profitable year after the next. Watching your favorite sport is good, but getting paid while watching your favorite sport is better.
