Headlined by three title fights, the UFC has released a promo for UFC 251.

The event will be the first of four set for “Fight Island,” AKA Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, and takes place July 11. In the main event, Kamaru Usman will defend his welterweight championship against the top contender Gilbert Burns.

In a rematch, Alexander Volkanovski makes his first featherweight title defense agains the man he defeated to become champion at UFC 245, Max Holloway. Plus, a new bantamweight champion will be crowned as Petr Yan will take on Jose Aldo.

Rounding out the main card will be the second meeting between former strawweight champions as Jessica Andrade will look to move to 2-0 against Rose Namajunas, and Amanda Ribas will square off against Paige VanZant, who will enter the octagon on the last fight of her UFC contract.
