UFC 249 Scheduled for Saturday May 9th!! No Fans!! NSS Reaction Report!!

                Props and major applause to Dana White for fighting and working hard to bring back sporting events.  White can claim to be the hardest working man in sports in finding a way around the Coronavirus.  The UFC event will be set in Jacksonville, Florida with no fans and the fighters will be tested for Coronavirus.  Is there anything that White can’t do? UFC 249: Ferguson vs Gaethje its happening (Maybe?)

                So far this is the information that we have:

  • VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena, Jacksonville, FL
  • 12 Bout Card ON PPV
  • Main Event – Lightweight Title Fight – Tony Ferguson Vs Justin Gaethje
    • Bantamweight Title Fight – Henry Cejudo vs Dominick Cruz
  • No Fans!! PPV
    • Side note – Trolls World Tour Movie when to streaming has made over $100 Million
    • White could be counting/hoping on more fans staying home and ordering the fight due social distancing instead of going to bars or watch parties.
    • Not the 1st fight without fans was stage on March 14 in Brazil
  • ESPN – Preliminary fights
  • About 150 people from the company
  • Testing will be mandated.

White right now is fighting the Coronavirus and even though we are a long way from Saturday, and anything could happen, it is exciting.  White seems to have everything cover.

Negative Nonsense!! As states are starting to reopen and relax some of the rules a possibility of a 2nd wave and an increase in numbers of cases and worse case scenarios.  Personally, I can’t hope to think that is bit a rush? How do the fighter feel about it and how have their been keeping up with their training?

White is truly against all odds right now!!
