It is certain that UFC 249 will be held in front of an empty stadium for the first time in the history of UFC pay per view event for safety reasons amid the coronavirus pandemic. It will take place on Saturday, May 09, at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.
The UFC 249 PPV and Prelims live streaming is available via TV on ESPN, ESPN+, and UFC fight pass.
UFC 249 headline had initially been imposed amid Khabib vs. Ferguson for Saturday, April 18, but it was canceled due to the Russian coronavirus location restriction. So this is why Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje fight is going to the main event of the card.
The title fight between Ferguson vs. Gaethje for the interim lightweight championship bout should start at 10:30 p.m. ET.
According to the BetMGM‘s betting odds, Ferguson -175 by distance is currently favored over Gaethje +145 and Henry Cejudo (15-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) goes the distance -223 over Dominick Cruz (22-2 MMA, 5-1 UFC) +180 by decision for bantamweight title champ bout.
