The fight between Nurmagomedov and Ferguson is the main event of the UFC 249 tournament, which was scheduled for April 18 in Brooklyn (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. Now, the organizers are looking for a new site.
“Khabib is in good condition, in good shape, as always. We keep our finger on the pulse, as soon as there is news (about the venue of the fight), everyone will immediately know about it,” Magomedov said by phone.
