UFC 251 was a momentous night for the world’s biggest MMA organization, as three titles were contested on a stacked card in the first-ever “UFC Fight Island” event.
It was a huge achievement just to be able to put on a show of that scale, with the level of preparation involved behind the scenes to host a massive pay-per-view event during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On this week’s episode of The Brit Pack, we take a look back at a fight card that delivered a little bit of everything in Abu Dhabi, as fans were treated to spectacular knockouts, stunning submissions, three huge title fights and a little sprinkling of controversy for good measure.
We deep-dive into the fight card on Yas Island, as we run through the big fights, and the big talking points, on a big night at UFC 251. Then we take a quickfire run through the two UFC Fight Night events set to take place this week, with Wednesday’s midweek card leading us into the weekend, where the UFC flyweight title will (hopefully) be decided when Deiveson Figueiredo and Joseph Benavidez throw down for a second time.
It’s another jam-packed episode of “The Brit Pack.” We hope you enjoy it! And if you do, please do head to Apple Podcasts and leave us a review, or hit up the show on social media. We’re @TheBritPackMMA on Twitter.
