Join us in the video player above tonight for a ‘radio style’ play-by-play broadcast of the UFC 251 PPV (pay-per-view) MAIN CARD with LIVE updates, results & reactions in our Live YouTube Video Stream, which will begin at approximately 8:30-9PM CST, at the start of the Featured Preliminary bout between Volkan Oezdemir & Jiří Procházka on SBN MMA’s YouTube Channel.
The UFC is showcasing a card featuring three title fights this time out. In our featured Welterweight Championship Bout we had the Current Best MMA Welterweight Fighter, Kamaru ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ Usman, appearing at UFC 251 in the Main Event TONIGHT (Sat., July 11, 2020) broadcast from the infamous #FIGHTISLAND in Abu Dhabi. The contender is our BMF Champion: Jorge ‘Gamebred’ Masvidal, entering the octagon on a three-fight win streak, having last defeated Nate Diaz in the main event at UFC 244 last November, fighting out of Miami, Florida, with a 35-13 fight record going up against Usman’s unprecedented seventeen-fight win streak, who last famously defeated Colby Covington at UFC 245 back in the main event in March of 2019, with a current 16-1 record.
Also on the card, a highly-anticipated Featherweight Championship scrap for our co-main event. It’s a battle between the current #1 best MMA Featherweight Fighter, Alexander ‘The Great’ Volkanovski against the #2 best in Max ‘Blessed’ Holloway; the third title fight of the night was for the Vacant Bantamweight Championship and was booked with Petr Yan going up against José Aldo Junior. As if that's not enough, we also have Jéssica ‘Bate Estaca’ Andrade against ‘Thug’ Rose Namajunas - which is preceded by a fully packed undercard... what a fun night of fights we have to look forward to!
You may have your reasons not to watch this event live, or shell out the cash for the PPV - so we did it for you. Maybe there’s just something more important going on tonight, where you just can’t be in front of the TV. Whatever the case may be, we’ve got you covered! During the entire five-fight main card portion of UFC 251, throughout the telecast, SBN MMA’s Matt Ryan, will engage with the live chat whenever possible. Along with his co-host Harry Terjanian, we will be doing a radio-style play-by-play broadcast of every single important bit of violence. The show is a modern YouTube stream, that will broadcast in the video player above, sort of like a sports talk show/bar hangout meets vlog.
Please join us and consider subscribing to SBN MMA on YouTube. Meanwhile, as the third member of our team, I will moderate your live chat, laying the ‘ban hammer’ down on those pesky spammers and ‘link beggars’, as well as offering support to the guys throughout the show with factoids, bonus updates and adding results and updated fight records in full detail to the chat and description, as well as right here in this post; so no need to go anywhere else...
