A stacked mixed martial arts card for some semblance of normalcy in this trying time.

Weeks of anxiety finally paid off, as perennial contender Justin Gaethje steps up to the plate to challenge number one-ranked lightweight Tony Ferguson, headlining a super stacked UFC 249. The pay-per-view card will take place on 9 May 2020 at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.

Aside from the main event bout between Ferguson and Gaethje, fans are in for a treat as “Triple C” Henry Cejudo stakes his UFC Bantamweight belt opposite former division kingpin Dominick Cruz. Fans can also expect fireworks at home as knockout artists Francis Ngannou and Jairzinho Rozenstruik, Jeremy Stephens and Calvin Kattar, and Greg Hardy and Yorgan de Castro complete the main card.

In essence, the UFC absolutely made a statement putting up this event, considering that even the preliminaries are good enough to be featured on any PPV card. There’s the rematch between Donald Cerrone and Anthony Pettis, as well as the return fight of Fabricio Werdum against fellow submission specialist Aleksei Oleinik.

Who to Bet on UFC 249?

As for determining who to bet on the main and co-main event of UFC 249, it all boils down to who can make the most of their strengths and exploit their opponents’ weaknesses.

For one, Tony Ferguson has always leaned on his resilience and his unorthodox yet effective style in the cage en route to a 12-fight winning streak. Justin Gaethje, on the other hand, may somewhat be considered a brawler by many, but his striking accuracy and the way he attacks angles can give El Cucuy a run for his money.

The co-main event tells a different story, with the champion Henry Cejudo and the challenger Dominick Cruz, on paper, seem to be more evenly matched, as both fighters posses high-caliber wrestling and grappling, as well as refined striking. However, there’s no denying that the champion comes in to the contest with unprecedented momentum and confidence having beaten long-time titleholder Demetrious Johnson, and overwhelming TJ Dillashaw and Marlon Moraes in the process.



During this time of uncertainty, the sporting world, specifically combat sports, needs something like UFC 249 to distract them from all that’s happening. Despite a number of raised eyebrows, the UFC went ahead and produced what appears to be a PPV fight card for the ages, so here’s to top-to-bottom exciting action and a handful of hours worth of much-need escapism.
