UFC 261: Kamaru Usman v Jorge Masvidal Live Stream
The weekend of UFC 261 has arrived, and a sold-out audience will be in attendance at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida to watch a jam-packed card headlined by a must-see Welterweight title rematch. Read on to learn where to find a UFC 261 live stream so you can watch Kamaru Usman vs Jorge Masvidal 2 online, as well as the start time and other information – ESPN+ has exclusive coverage.
Last time they met
The two fighters first met at UFC 251 in Abu Dhabi in September of last year. In that fight, Usman, the reigning champion, outclassed Masvidal to win by unanimous decision in the Nigerian Nightmare’s second defence of his title.
Masvidal stepped in at the last minute to substitute Gilbert Burns just six days before the fight, forcing “Gamebred” to go through a gruelling weight cut.
This time around, both men have full camps and – hopefully in Masvidal’s favour this time – the return of a full 15,000-strong UFC home.
What do the bookies think?
Bookmakers are highly favouring Usman to successfully defend his crown, which means that anyone backing Gamebred’s chances will find some tempting odds on a surprise Masvidal victory.
Rematch: UFC 261
The second bout is part of a packed UFC 261 card that also features two female title bouts, with flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko facing former strawweight champion Jessica Andrade and new 115-pound champion Weili Zhang facing former champion Rose Namajunas.

In Europe, how do I watch UFC 261 without PPV?
If you’re in the United States, you’re sort of trapped. It’s either PPV or nothing.
Not so in Europe, owing to the fact that it airs in the middle of the night! Instead, DAZN, a sports subscription service, has the rights.
So, whether you’re a UFC fan in Austria, Italy, Germany, or Spain, head over to the DAZN website right now.
Even better news: in certain areas, you can still watch for free (we can confirm that is the case in Germany, for example). That’s because there’s a 30-day free trial available if you’ve never had a subscription before.
