UFC President Dana White guaranteed that UFC 249 would happen. Furthermore, he said that there was already a venue secured where they would hold the closed-door event.
Of course, Dana wouldn’t give details about the location of the event or further details surrounding the UFC when it comes to the virus. But, it’s also looking like UFC 249 is going to be an even bigger card than fans ever imagined.
Dana White just told @bokamotoESPN on his IG live stream that #UFC249 will most likely be a totally new card with a mixture of existing fights and fights moved to it. One of those added to it could be Francis Ngannou vs. Jairzinho Rozenstruik. That's what they're working on.
