Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson at Unknown Location Without going so far as to reveal the location, Dana White has declared that a venue has been “99.9% confirmed” for the Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson lightweight title bout headlining UFC 249, and it won’t be in America. This fight has been in the works since 2015, but kept getting cancelled due to injuries, so it’s not surprising that White is determined to see it through despite the COVID-19 concerns. The fight will take place behind closed doors.

Lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov will look to defend his title against No. 1 lightweight fighter Tony Ferguson at UFC 249—now slated to take place outside of America with no audience. Get your MMA odds at Bovada today.

Nurmagomedov (—300 favorite at Bovada) has yet to be defeated since starting his professional fighting career in 2008. According to the sportsbooks the lightweight champ has the longest active undefeated streak in MMA at 28-0 and will put that on the line against the No. 1 ranked lightweight fighter in Tony Ferguson. Nurmagomedov has flown back to Russia instead of finishing out his training in San Jose, California.

With a 25-3 record, Ferguson is undefeated in his last 12 fights and will enter UFC 249 as the 10th-ranked pound-for-pound fighter. His two most recent wins came from Anthony Pettis and Donald Cerrone, and both where TKO’s in the second round. Ferguson will be Nurmagomedov’s toughest opponent to date and will be keen to overcome his +230 underdog betting odds.
