UFC unveils entire ‘Fight Island’ lineups for July including ‘Whittaker vs Till,’ ‘Figueiredo vs Benavidez 2’ and more

We already knew that UFC 251 will kick off Ultimate Fighting Championship’s jam-packed “Fight Island” slate of fights for the month of July, which is set to go down on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi beginning on July 11, 2020.

The pay-per-view event will feature three title fights: Kamaru Usman vs Gilbert Burns for the Welterweight belt, Alexander Volkanovski vs Max Holloway 2 for the Featherweight strap, and Jose Aldo vs Petr Yan for the vacant Bantamweight strap.

See the rest of the stacked lineup here.

And earlier today (Thurs., June 18, 2020) UFC president Dana White confirmed several matchups after unveiling the entire lineup for the remaining three events on July 15, July 18 and then on July 25.

Check out the entire lineups below.

UFC Fight Night: “Kattar vs Ige” on July 15

UFC Fight Night: “Figueiredo vs Benavidez 2” on July 18

UFC Fight Night: “Whittaker vs Till” July 25

With UFC having more fighters to work with due to several international stars now getting the opportunity to travel, the upcoming slate of events are a bit more stacked with well-known veterans, legends and former champions when compared to the promotion’s last few events.

For now, UFC hasn’t revealed further plans to make another trip to “Fight Island” this year, as the promotion has a full deck of events on hand ready to go down inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada in August. But should restrictions and shutdowns occur once again, it’s nice to know White and Co. have an ace in their back pocket if needed.

You’ve seen the lineups, which fight(s) are you looking forward to the most?
