249

This is what Dana said 5 minutes ago with regards to where Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson will take place:


“I do know the location. But I’m not ready to announce it yet. There’s not going to be any fans there. It’s going to be a closed event.”

Later in the interview when asked if the price of the PPV would be dropped ...

Dana: "Let me tell you how much it's going to cost me to pull this thing off. Yeah. No, we won't be dropping the price."

Dana:

"I have two or three options in the United States and I have three or four options outside the country. The less the media knows the better."

According to Dana ...

249 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.

If Dana lives up to his promise and finds a way to execute UFC 249 next month, the card is sure to have a different feel than previous pay-per-views. It also will have a different sound.

“I guess someone’s going to commentate it – it’s not gonna be me,” Rogan said on a recent episode of the “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast.

Due to the event’s short-notice location change, many of the slated bouts could fall through due to travel issues.

With that said, Cowboy Cerrone is more than willing to step up.

Cowboy recently took to Instagram where he proclaimed that he is ready and willing to fight if the promotion needs him.

"155 or 170. I’ll be waiting on the call.”

Surging UFC welterweight contender Gilbert Burns caught wind that Cerrone is willing to participate at the April 18 event.

‘Durinho’ immediately took to Twitter to challenge ‘Cowboy’ to a welterweight scrap.

"Come on @danawhite @seanshelby @AliAbdelaziz00 @ufc I’m #HUNGRY BURNS X CERRONE”


Cowboy was most recently in action at January’s UFC 246 event, where he suffered a first round knockout loss to former two-division champion Conor McGregor.

The loss marked Cerrone’s third in a row, as he had previously suffered stoppage losses to top lightweight contenders Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje.

Burns is currently riding a five fight win streak, with his three most recent wins coming inside of the promotions welterweight division.

In his most recent effort two weeks ago, Burns scored a sensational first round knockout victory over former title challenger Demian Maia.

Khabib Nurmagomedov confirmed in an IG live chat earlier today that he is in Russia and can’t leave because they have closed their borders. He also said UFC has told him they are looking at another opponent for Tony Ferguson because the fight can’t be made now.

According to sources, UFC is aware of Nurmagomedov's status and have now begun looking at alternate plans for the April 18 main event and card, which they are still determined to put on.

As a result, Tony Ferguson, per sources, has been offered a fight against top contender Justin Gaethje, however, that fight has not been agreed upon nor finalized. Neither has a location for the event.

This marks the 5th time the UFC has officially booked Nurmagomedov vs. Ferguson only to see it fall through.

This fight is truly cursed.

UFC has also briefly considered trying to book Kamaru Usman vs Jorge Masvidal for April 18 but that is not looking likely at the moment, sources say.

Francis Ngannou vs. Jairzinho Rozenstruik is another fight the UFC has discussed adding to this card, if it happens in the United States.

While this was mostly a foregone conclusion given the status of Khabib, Islam Makhachev will also not be competing.

Alexander Hernandez is currently without an opponent, but the present expectation is that he will compete on the card.

Tony Ferguson vs. Justin Gaethje for the interim lightweight title on April 18 is signed.

Location still TBD.


They‘ve zeroed on a location on the west coast of the US to hold this event & hope to finalize ASAP.

Francis Ngannou will likely fight Jairzinho Rozenstruik

Yorgan de Castro will likely fight Greg Hardy Jr.


The word "likely" because the location is still not confirmed ...
