Next month, at UFC 261 - headlined by Kamaru Usman v Jorge Masvidal II - the UFC will be packing 15,000 people into the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena down in Jacksonville and will be the first to bring back non-socially-distanced crowds at sporting events. Tickets went on sale today and sold out in mere MINUTES, which obviously makes you think fans are eager as hell to get back to the sense of normalcy this event may provide!
I'm not gonna sit here and list my concerns for the event, because I think those are obvious and the same as everyone else's (especially in a time where fights are just getting pulled left and right because of COVID cases) - I'm just wishin the UFC the best of luck in puttin on a safe event.
It should be a phenomenal card, which features not one...not two...but THREE UFC Championship bouts, all of which should be great fights....
….and hearing the roar of a crowd behind em will only intensify it all. Can't wait.
