The UFC will host their first event of UFC 2021 on Fight Island, it will be in front of some fans. The promotion has decided to sell some tickets to high-rollers, and they’ll be witness to what looks like a pretty decent card on paper - and it’s the first ever UFC show to air on ABC.
The headliner will see former featherweight kingpin Max Holloway looking to rebound from two straight losses to Alexander Volkanovski when he meets the streaking Calvin Kattar. The co-main will go old school, with former WEC and interim UFC welterweight champ Carlos Condit taking on the always rugged Matt Brown.
