With all of sports shut down around the world, UFC is set to become the first organization back in action on Saturday night when UFC 249 kicks off from Jacksonville, Florida. UFC returns with a loaded fight card as it kicks off a stretch where three separate fight cards will take place over eights days, all from the same arena as they look to get back on track.

Things got a little hairy on Friday night when it was announced that preliminary card fighter Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza tested positive for COVID-19. He was seen wearing a mask and gloves throughout the weigh-in process on Friday morning and gave a fist bump to UFC president Dana White before a socially distant staredown with opponent Uriah Hall. The fight has been removed from the card and with the sanctioning body's blessing, the show will go on.

And what a card it will be as UFC has loaded up this event with fan-friendly fighters who will go out there and lay it all on the line. In the main event, Tony Ferguson will take on Justin Gaethje for the interim lightweight title. Plus, bantamweight champ Henry Cejudo will take on former strapholder Dominick Cruz in the co-main event and heavyweight sluggers Francis Ngannou and Jair Rozenstruik will get the featured slot with a shot at the heavyweight title on the line.
