UFC is welcoming fans back to the arena with a stacked fight card on Saturday, April 25, 2021 and there are multiple UFC 261 crackstream and Reddit stream alternatives to watch the pay-per-view event legally.
More than 15,000 fans will be in attendance at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida to attend UFC 261. The event will feature a triad of title fights on the main card. This will be the first time since March last year that fans will be in full capacity at a UFC event.
The main event of the card will see the welterweight champion Kamaru Usman defend his 170-pounds title for the fourth time. He will lock horns with Jorge Masvidal in the headliner in a rematch of their UFC 251 bout where Kamaru Usman came out victorious with a unanimous decision win.
Women's strawweight champion Zhang Weili will take on Rose Namajunas in the co-main event title fight, while women's flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko will defend her belt against Jessica Andrade in the third title bout of the night.
Here is Dana White breaking down the full fight card for UFC 261.
