The UFC has decided, after the retirement of Jorge Masvidal, to regain the Baddest Mother Fucker (BMF) Championship. The decision has upset some fighters, such as Makhachev and Nate Diaz, but although it is an attractive fight, the duel “dresses” more with a belt even if it is honorific. The fight has raised a lot of hype, since in 2018 the two contenders achieved “the fight of the year”. On that occasion, Poirier knocked out Gaethje.
Time and date: What time does UFC 291: Dustin Poirier vs Justin Gaethje 2 start?
With a powerful star, but without a title, the UFC has wanted to close a co-star that has also generated a lot of expectation. Former middleweight champion Alex Pereira makes his light heavyweight debut against former division champion Jan Blachowicz. The Brazilian was knocked out, in a brutal way, only four months ago, but he wanted to take the risk to be able to win the title of his new category. UFC 291 takes place this Saturday, July 29 (early Saturday to Sunday) at the Delta Center in Salt Lake City (Utah, United States) from 01:00 hours. The second round of preliminaries will start at 02:00 hours (Spanish peninsular time). Finally, the stellar billboard will start at 04:00 hours.
