Ufc 249 Live Schedule
Lovers of mixed martial arts may already be happy. They can’t see MMA fights for more than a month, but that will end this weekend. And it is that this Saturday, May 9, the action will return with UFC 249.
The event will be held at the Veterans Memorial Arena in the city of Jacksonville, Florida, and the broadcast for all of Latin America will be hosted by FOX Action and ESPN: the preliminaries will begin at 5:30 pm; while the stellar ones at 9:00 pm (Peru time).
UFC 249 was to be held on April 18 at the Barclays Center in New York, but the Wuhan virus foiled the plans. The city of the Big Apple was already becoming the center of the pandemic, so it wasn’t going to be possible to pay-per-view there.
Dana White, the UFC president, searched for other venues and found one in California, but pressure from ESPN and Disney caused the event to be suspended indefinitely. However, this Saturday there will finally be fighting. And it will be in Florida because that state does allow this type of show.
The stellar fight will star Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje for the interim lightweight title. Gaethje will replace Khabib Nurmagomedov, the division champion, who withdrew from the fight due to the crisis that the whole planet is experiencing.
