I Won’t Believe UFC 249 Is Actually Happening Until It Happens
When Jon Akin whispers those sweet sweet words “Nemiroff bold character since 1872”. Then I will know UFC 249 is actually going down. Let’s not spiral down a rabbit hole of conspiracy theories as to why the Covid-19 pandemic is going on. Just act like Eddie Bravo and “look into it.” But the fact remains this pandemic has robbed us of countless sporting events and I am just not getting my hopes up again.
If there’s anything we know about Dana White is he doesn’t give a fuck about what people think. The UFC is his baby and he’s going to make events happen regardless. The last attempt at UFC 249 was ripped out of his hands by ESPN/Disney. When pressed with adversity Dana has become the best at navigating to a positive outcome for the UFC.
The main and co-main events are worth the price of admission alone. Tony Ferguson has obliterated his past eleven opponents, Justin Gaethje has KO’d his past three in the first round. This fight won’t go the distance. Henry Cejudo is chasing legacy. Yes, he wants to be champ but beating Dominick Cruz is worth more than the belt once you’re the champ.
