UFC 249 might actually happen

UFC 249 might actually happen

The risk of coronavirus hasn’t deterred Dana White, and because of that we might actually have a live sporting event in less than two weeks.

The UFC president has remained steadfast in his desire to put on UFC 249 on April 18 despite coronavirus grinding the sports world to a halt, and it may be coming to fruition. ESPN reports UFC is close to finalizing a West Coast venue for the event.

The MMA promotion, per the report, has explored holding the event on tribal land in order to work around state athletic commission regulations. UFC postponed several other events that were set to take place before UFC 249.

UFC 249 was originally scheduled to take place at Barclays Center, but bans on mass gatherings and stay-at-home orders across the country have left UFC scrambling. The card was initially headlined by a Khabib Nurmagomedov-Tony Ferguson lightweight title bout, but Nurmagomedov is stuck in Russia and unable to travel.
