CelebNSports247.com has learned that Dana White isn’t willing to let the fifth booking of Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson fall by the wayside, even in the face of a worldwide pandemic.
White said on ESPN’s SportsCenter:
We’re postponing the next three events, but Tony Ferguson vs. Khabib (on) April 18 is still on. That will still happen.
Nurmagomedov (28-0 MMA, 12-0 UFC) vs. Ferguson (25-3 MMA, 15-1 UFC) was originally scheduled to take place at UFC 249 at Barclays Center in the New York borough of Brooklyn.
However, since the recent coronavirus outbreak, the event was pulled from the venue.
What does this mean for the UFC fight?
This probably means bringing the fight outside of the United States and not having a crowd.
White went on to reveal:
We’re going to follow these guidelines to not have more than 10 people in a room. We’re hoping this all clears up by April. This fight is going to happen. No crowd – whatever it takes. It probably won’t even be in the United States, but this fight is going to happen.
