Media: Nurmagomedov and Ferguson fight may take place in Florida

The fight between Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov and American Tony Ferguson may take place in Florida, according to MMA Fighting.

The fight between Nurmagomedov and Ferguson is the main event of the UFC 249 tournament, which was scheduled for April 18 in New York (the USA). The centers for disease prevention and control (CDC) issued a recommendation on March 15 to cancel or postpone events involving more than 50 people across the country over the next eight weeks due to the coronavirus. Later, UFC President Dana White said that he had decided on the venue for the fight, but did not name it until it was officially approved.

According to MMA Fighting journalist Steve Morocco, the fight may take place in Orlando, Tampa or Jacksonville. All these cities are located in the state of Florida.
