After an amazing UFC 257 featuring Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier in the main event, we have another fantastic main card for UFC 258 at the UFC APEX on Saturday. In the main event on ESPN+ PPV, we have a welterweight title fight between Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns. Then in the co-main event, we have Maycee Barber taking on Alexa Grasso in the women’s flyweight bout. There are five fights scheduled on the main card, which begins at 10:00 p.m. ET.
Usman is one of the best men’s fighters pound-for-pound in the UFC. “Nigerian Nightmare” is currently the champion of the welterweight division and ranked fifth in the pound-for-pound rankings. The four fighters ranked ahead of Usman are Khabib Nurmagomedov, Jon Jones, Israel Adesanya, and Stipe Miocic. But do not sleep on Usman’s challenger in Gilbert “Durinho” Burns, who is ranked first in the welterweight division and has 19 pro wins under his belt.
Outside of the main event, you have Barber vs. Grasso, Kelvin Gastelum vs. Ian Heinisch, and Julian Marquez back in the octagon for the first time in 31 months. It’s a lot of great action on deck this weekend that you do not want to miss.
