UFC 249 preview
Instead, Justin Gaethje has stepped in at short notice for a night of mixed martial arts that was originally slated for April 18 at an undisclosed location. Now it’s back at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville on a night when there will be no fans in the stadium. It is the first of three UFC events being held over eight days at the same venue.
The UFC’s much vaunted private island was a mooted venue, while it was first scheduled to take place in Brooklyn before the event itself was postponed indefinitely.
Headlined by the interim Lightweight Championship fight between Ferguson and Gaethje, Bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo will also defend his belt against former champion Dominick Cruz.
Heavyweight standouts Francis Ngannou and Jairzinho Rozenstruik will also face off, along with a clash of veteran contenders Anthony Pettis and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone on a packed card.
Women’s strawweight champion Rose Namajunas last month tragically withdrew from her co-main event with Jessica Andrade due to two coronavirus deaths in her family.
Who will win UFC 249 Ferguson vs Gaethje?
Even though Nurmagomedov isn’t involved, this is considered just about the second best option out there and has fight fans excited. These are two fighters with incredibly high work rates who move forward at just about all times.
Gaethje has a record of 21-2 and has won his last 3 fights in devastating fashion, all inside the first round. Ferguson’s record is 25-3 and he is on an extraordinary 12-fight winning run. You can see why everyone is so hopeful this fight goes ahead.
Ferguson is unsurprisingly the favourite considering his winning run. But this really could go either way. We’ll opt for Ferguson by split decision.
