  • The latest betting odds for UFC 251, which will take place on Saturday July 11, make Jorge Masvidal an underdog (odds: +225) against Kamaru Usman (odds: -272) in the main event.
  • Jorge Masvidal was a last-minute replacement in the title bout after Gilbert Burns tested positive for COVID-19.

Updated: July 7, 2020

One of the biggest lessons the 2020 sports calendar has taught us is to write plans down in pencil.

UFC 251 will go on as scheduled at Fight Island, a facility set up on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, and still features three championship fights. However, the main event will see an 11th-hour shakeup.

Welterweight Gilbert Burns was scheduled to fight for a belt at UFC 251, but test positive for COVID-19. Kamaru Usman will now defend his welterweight title against Jorge Masvidal in Saturday’s main event. Masvidal (+225) enters the fight as a larger dog than Burns before he was pulled.

Undefeated featherweight Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway will have a rematch of their 2019 title fight in the co-main event, while the third title fight of the evening will feature Petr Yan and Jose Aldo battling for the vacant UFC bantamweight belt.

Check out the odds for all five main event bouts.
