UFC 251 takes place on July 11 at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, better known as UFC's “Fight Island”. The island is proposed as a way to provide more opportunities to international fighters that otherwise can't compete in the United States due to COVID-19 travel bans.

The UFC 251 poster features the three title fights: Champion Kamaru Usman vs. Gilbert Burns for the welterweight title; a featherweight title fight rematch between Alexander Volkanovski and former champ Max Holloway; and a battle for the vacant bantamweight belt pitting Jose Aldo vs. Petr Yan.



And though their faces might not be present, the UFC 251 poster also features a key strawweight bout in writing: Amanda Ribas vs. Page VanZant.
