The Ultimate Fighting Championship is poised to deliver on Company President Dana White’s promise to become the first major sport back in business. All but one weighted – the only miss was Jeremy Stephens – with two title fights headlining the UFC 249 battle card.

The revamped event has moved to Jacksonville, Florida, where Tony Ferguson teams up with Justin Gaethje for the interim UFC lightweight championship. Bantamweight defending champion Henry Cejudo will defend his belt against former champion Dominick Cruz in the UFC 249 co-main event on Saturday.

After the weigh-in and a long pause, the UFC 249 fighters faced each other to stare at each other. About the only normal thing about the UFC 249 stare downs, however, was White’s presence to tell them apart, which wasn’t much of an issue. All hunters kept a certain distance between them, at least a few feet, while others followed the six-foot social distance recommendation. Some shook hands, some fisted with punches, some did none of the above.

Remember, all hunters were tested for COVID-19 at the guest hotel in Jacksonville and underwent mandatory daily medical examinations, including temperature checks and other precautions.
