A short break for Easter in the UFC will be followed by plenty of top action over the coming weeks as the world’s top MMA stars face off.

Conor McGregor suffered a shock defeat to Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 to kickstart 2021 and there’s been plenty of thrills and spills in the months since.

McGregor headlined the Fight Island event in January but was stunned by old rival Poirier who claimed a brilliant TKO win over the Irishman.

Kamaru Usman then defended his welterweight crown at UFC 258 in February, seeing off Gilbert Burns in devastating style.

Jan Blachowicz defeat Israel Adesanya at UFC 259 where Amanda Nunes also defended her title and most recently Francis Ngannou became the new heavyweight champion by beating Stipe Miocic at UFC 260.
