2020 UFC event schedule: Kamaru Usman vs. Jorge Masvidal, Stipe Miocic vs. Daniel Cormier III highlight PPVs

Watch Now: UFC 251 Preview: Kamaru Usman vs Jorge Masvidal (6:22)

UFC has made good on its promise to never stop running live events throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Despite cancelling a handful of shows early on, the premier mixed martial arts organization in the world has had events just about every week since May 9. 

It started with Tony Ferguson taking on Justin Gaethje in Jacksonville and has seen Amanda Nunes face off with Felicia Spencer in Las Vegas. The company closed out its short residency in Sin City with an instant classic as Dustin Poirier outlasted Dan Hooker over five grueling rounds to insert his name back into title contention at 155 pounds.

As we head into the teeth of summer, UFC is getting ready to go global once again with Fight Island coming to life off the coast of Abu Dhabi. Things get kicked off in earnest this weekend with UFC 251 boasting a trio of title fights. In the main event, Kamaru Usman will look to defend his welterweight title against Jorge Masvidal after his scheduled opponent and teammate, Gilbert Burns, was forced to withdraw after testing positive for the coronavirus. 

Plus, Alexander Volkanovski faces off with Max Holloway in a featherweight title rematch and Petr Yan takes on Jose Aldo for the vacant bantamweight title.
