UFC 249 fight card: Ferguson vs Gaethje and more, start times

UFC returns on Saturday night when Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje headline UFC 249 to fight for the interim lightweight championship.

The event will take place at an empty VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville after UFC took an eight-week hiatus amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

Ferguson (25–3), who has won 12 consecutive bouts, was set to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 249 in Brooklyn last month until the pandemic disrupted those plans. Gaethje (21–2) won his last three bouts and was chosen to replace Nurmagomedov in the bout.
