"Barring any last minute hiccups... people are very confident that, in exactly seven days from now, we're going to be seeing one of the most anticipated fights of 2020." @arielhelwani went on @SportsCenter to provide an update on @USMAN84kg and @GamebredFighter at #UFC251 https://t.co/q1FFlXrzKU

Just reported on @SportsCenter: The Usman-Masvidal talks are ongoing and moving in a positive direction. While there are still multiple hurdles left, feeling confident about the direction of the talks and barring any last minute issues it appears inevitable this fight gets done.

Going on SportsCenter in a few minutes for an update on Usman v Masvidal.

One potential concern, though it’s early: the weight cut. They are very strict about not leaving the rooms and results could take up to 48 hours to arrive.

Everything is CCTV monitored, I’m told, so they are making sure everyone stays in their respective rooms. It appears as though the protocol there is much stricter than for the Jacksonville and Las Vegas events, so far, but no one has complained to me. Everyone seems pleased.

All the American-based fighters have now landed and are quarantining in their hotel rooms on Yas Island. Everyone I spoke to has had nothing but good things to say about the process. In the end, they didn’t take a COVID test at the airport, rather at the hotel. So that’s 2 so far

Per the CDC, antibody tests check your blood by looking for antibodies, which may tell you if you had a past infection with the virus that causes COVID-19.

It'll be @stylebender vs. @BorrachinhaMMA in September if City Kickboxing coach Eugene Bareman has his way. (via @bokamotoESPN) https://t.co/XQfq6ATHKZ

Volkanovksi told me he only got approval to fly out 6 hours before their flight was set to depart but his team didn’t tell him to avoid any stress. Had to get approval from Australian and Abu Dhabi government to fly and land.

The flight is scheduled to land in 2 hours. Upon arrival they’ll have to take their second COVID-19 test, go to the hotel, take a third COVID test and then quarantine in room until results come back. Volkanovski has been there for several hours now. He flew direct from Sydney.

Sources I spoke to seem quite pleased with the accommodations. After all, they don’t usually always fly biz class and Etihad planes are nice. They even have their own “Fight Island” signage on the plane, as you can see from this @paigevanzant IG story. https://t.co/HdwAlZfpnU

The UFC’s charter flight from Vegas to Abu Dhabi left late last night. UFC rented an Etihad Airways plane. All the fighters, UFC staff and some corners are in first and business class. Rest of corners in coach. Media in second coach. Every one is spread out.

Should the UFC pull out the stops to book Usman vs. Masvidal at #UFC251? What must Holloway do different this time against Volkanovski? Will the conditions in Abu Dhabi affect the fights? @bokamotoESPN, @arielhelwani, @jeffwagenheim and I discuss: https://t.co/G03lMPXLhD
