UFC 251 Results

blood in the water

While not oceanside in the sand like we were promised, the UFC octagon found its way, somehow, against the odds and recommendation of many, to Fight Island for the first of four scheduled events. The first, on paper, was certainly the best in terms of star power. With three title fights and a solid prelim alignment, UFC 251 looked to be the best card of the year.
