UFC 249 live updates, results, highlights from Tony Ferguson vs. Justin Gaethje & fight card



The long-awaited return of fight sports comes Saturday night in Jacksonville, Fla., in a stacked UFC 249 card headlined by Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje.

Originally scheduled for mid-April, the event is going through at UFC president Dana White’s urging without fans in attendance amid the coronavirus pandemic. White previously tried to ram through the event in California before relenting at the request of ESPN.

There are 11 fights scheduled for Saturday, including five on the main card. The interim lightweight title and bantamweight title are up for grabs.
