The new year will start with a bang in the UFC with some mouth-watering fights coming up.

The world of MMA continued to flourish throughout a difficult 2020 with UFC boss Dana White determined to keep the action going.
Events have taken place behind closed doors since March but there was some truly memorable nights.
Usman beat Jorge Masvidal at UFC 251 on ‘Fight Island’ in July and the company was back in Abu Dhabi in the autumn as Adeasanya defended his middleweight title against Paulo Costa.
In October, Khabib Nurmagomedov claimed a stunning win over Justin Gaethje in the headline bout of UFC 254 before the legendary Russian retired from the sport.
With the 2020 UFC calendar is now done and dusted, we are gearing up for what should be another thrilling year in 2021.
Up first, McGregor – on Fight Island – in a rematch of his 2014 fight with Dustin Poirier.
And so, as the UFC gets set to return this weekend, here’s the full schedule for all the upcoming MMA fights in 2021…
