Dana White has shared UFC's spine-tingling promo ahead of UFC 251 event.

After a determined White laid the groundwork, 'Fight Island' gets underway on Saturday, with UFC 251 marking the first of four events on Yas Island off Abu Dhabi.

And this three minute promo, shared prematurely by UFC president White, will get you seriously pumped for what looks set to be a very special night of mixed martial arts.

Narrated by Ron Pearlman and featuring plenty of soundbites and key moments from the UFC archive, it perfectly encapsulates how groundbreaking an event 'Fight Island' promises to be.

A stacked card has been assembled for the unprecedented event, including three huge title fights.

Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway will rematch for the featherweight title, Jose Aldo takes on Petr Yan for the vacant bantamweight strap and then of course in the main event, we have Kamaru Usman defending his welterweight belt against Jorge Masvidal after 'Gamebred' negotiated a new UFC contract and took the fight on six days' notice following Gilbert Burns' positive COVID-19 result.

Five days ago, White shared the promo for the Usman-Masvidal and that alone is enough to get you in the mood for UFC 251.

There's a genuine animosity between Usman and Masvidal, who have regularly thrown shade at one another and had a heated altercation at a Super Bowl media day in Miami back in January when they had to be pulled apart.

As you hear the Nigerian Nightmare say in the promo package, Usman believes fame has changed BMF champion Masvidal and he has become "everything he said he wouldn't be".

Masvidal is all about business going into the main event but stated he's willing to throw "a little bit more than the super necessary punches" and get a few extra punches in if the ref trips while trying to stop him.
