UFC 249 live stream free: How to watch Ferguson vs. Gaethje online, start time. UFC 249 live stream: How to watch full Ferguson vs. Gaethje fight card online
With all other professional American sports leagues on hold, we will all become MMA fans Saturday night when UFC 249 takes place in Jacksonville, Florida.
Inspite of the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, UFC owner Dana White has decided to proceed with all events.
Saturday’s card will be highlighted by a main event that pits Tony Ferguson against Justin Gaethje in the Lightweight Interim Title fight.
Current Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov was slated to take on Ferguson in the title bout, but he is unable to travel to the United States from Dagestan.
One fight has already been scrapped due to the coronavirus. Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza tested positive for the virus Friday, so the UFC pulled him from the card. His match against Uriah Hall has been canceled.
“UFC’s medical team examined Souza and his two cornermen and found them to be currently asymptomatic, or not exhibiting the common symptoms of COVID-19,” UFC said in statement, per ESPN.

It’s time to catch a UFC 249 live stream to celebrate the return of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. The popular mixed martial arts promotion has been on a two-month hiatus due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but with a new venue and a stacked card headlined by Ferguson vs. Gaethje, it looks to be coming back in a big way.
The UFC 249 main event will see Tony Ferguson battle Justin Gaethje in a highly anticipated bout. Currently on a 12-fight winning streak, Ferguson will look to keep the momentum going with his signature high-impact style. Gaethje is a fan favorite and former World Series of Fighting lightweight champ, but a win on Saturday night could help him secure a spot among the UFC’s elite.
