The Ultimate Fighting Championship has announced that on April 24th, the promotion will hold a card with three title fights, and with fans in attendance.

Recently the company confirmed that UFC 261 will take place at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida. The card will be headlined by a rematch between welterweight champ, Kamaru Usman (18-1) and Jorge Masvidal (35-14).

Masvidal stepped up on short notice last July to face Usman at UFC 251, and lost via unanimous decision.

In addition, UFC 261 will feature flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko taking on former strawweight champ, Jessica Andrade (21-8), and current strawweight champ Zhang Weili (21-1) versus former champ, Rose Namajunas (9-4).
