Tony Ferguson vs Justin Gaithje will headline UFC 249

Tony Ferguson

The main event for UFC 249 has been confirmed.

UFC boss Dana White announced on Monday that Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaithje have signed on to fight as the headline event.

The location for the fight has not yet been disclosed. White likely knows the location, or the possible locations, but does not want to share that information to prevent backlash for hosting a fight during the coronavirus pandemic while many states are under lockdown orders from the government.

Ferguson was originally scheduled to face Khabib Nurmagomedov in a highly-anticipated fight, but that will no longer be taking place. Khabib flew home to Russia and expressed concerns about traveling and fighting during the pandemic.

Ferguson is 25-3 in his career and has not lost since 2012.
