The UFC returns on May 9 with a stacked UFC 249 card featuring an interim lightweight title bout between Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje.
With a combined 17 post-fight performance bonuses, Ferguson and Gaethje have thrilled fans like no other duo over the last several years, defeating the likes of Donald Cerrone, Anthony Pettis and Edson Barboza. And now with a title on the line, expect to see the best from the best as these top contenders collide in a five-round bout to air live on pay-per-view.
In the co-main event, former world champion Dominick Cruz makes his long-awaited return to the Octagon to challenge Henry Cejudo for the UFC bantamweight crown.
Two explosive heavyweight showdowns from the UFC Columbus event have found a home on the UFC 249 card, as well, as Francis Ngannou squares off with Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Greg Hardy takes on Yorgan De Castro.
Plus, there’s a rematch of welterweight action heroes Vicente Luque and Niko Price that has the potential to steal the show on this stacked card, as well as another rematch pitting veteran superstars Anthony “Showtime” Pettis and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone against each other.
These fights and many more make UFC 249 a must see event.
