Source: Khabib vs. Ferguson may take place in Florida
It looks like the UFC 249 headlined by the lightweight title fight between Russian champ Khabib Nurmagomedov (28-0) and Tony Ferguson (25-3) will happen in spite of coronavirus pandemic.
Steven Marrocco of MMAFighting announced on his Twitter that the main option for the bout is Florida state while the promotion negotiates Florida government. Orlando, Tampa or Jacksonville are considered as options.
Initially, the UFC 249 was supposed to take place in Brooklyn, New York, but due to coronavirus pandemic the state imposed mass events restriction. The promotion had to look for other locations and yesterday Dana White said he had found what he needed.
