Dana White has kept his promise and UFC 249 will go on as planned on April 18th despite large parts of the country currently on lockdown.

According to White, Justin Gaethje will replace Khabib Nurmagomedov, who was forced to pull out because he’s currently stuck in Russia, and will Tony Ferguson for the interim lightweight championship “somewhere on Earth”.

According to ESPN’s Ariel Helwani the UFC has secured a location somewhere on the west coast of the United States.

Gaethje seems pretty excited about the fight.
