It appears that the long-awaited UFC 249 will finally happen this Saturday after a series of fits and starts due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
The seven undercard fights are slated to begin at 6 p.m. ET on ESPN/ESPN+ with the five-bout main card moving to ESPN PPV around 10 p.m. ET.
The card was initially supposed to be headlined by UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson. With Nurmagomedov unable to come back to the United States due to travel restrictions, Ferguson will now face Justin Gaethje for the interim lightweight title.
Ferguson (26-3) is riding a 12-fight win streak that dates back to 2013 and has scored stoppage wins in five of his past six bouts. Gaethje (21-2) has been equally dangerous as of late, finishing his past three opponents by KO/TKO in the first round.
The Co-Main event should be equally action-packed with bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo (15-2) defending his title against Dominick Cruz (22-2) who hasn’t fought since Dec. 2016.
