How to Watch ‘UFC 249’ Online – Live Stream Ferguson vs. Gaethje

By Gabriela Vatu / May 8, 2020

UFC events are happening again, and UFC 249 is the first one to return to screens after the break mandated by the Coronavirus outbreak. We're going to watch UFC 249 online, so join us in figuring out how you can do this as well.

The event was supposed to take place on April 18th in New York, but following restrictions imposed by the state's governor regarding mass gatherings and sporting events, UFC 249 was canceled. Dana White, the UFC boss, has been pushing for matches to take place for a while now, but got a lot of pushback from the ESPN managers, as it wasn't considered to be something safe to do.

Now, following the decision the Florida governor made to allow sporting events behind closed doors, UFC 249 will take place in Jacksonville. Two others will follow the May 9th event - on May 13th and 16th, in the same city.

Here are the night's fight cards:

UFC 249
Lightweight Tony Ferguson Justin Gaethje
Bantamweight Henry Cejudo Dominick Cruz
Heavyweight Francis Ngannou Jairzinho Rozenstruik
Featherweight Jeremy Stephens Calvin Kattar
Heavyweight Greg Hardy Yorgan De Castro
