UFC 251 goes down in just six days, but there have been some major changes. Gilbert Burns has been removed from the card due to a positive COVID-19 test, and has been replaced by Jorge Masvidal, pending negative COVID tests for both him and champ Kamaru Usman.

The UFC is obviously scrambling to promote this fight as much as possible in a short window, so UFC president Dana White released the first promo video for the fight today on social media. It clocks in at just under three minutes, and it’s pretty slick.

Check it out:
