The Spine-Tingling UFC Promo For Tony Ferguson Vs. Justin Gaethje Is Guaranteed To Get You Hyped
UFC have released an incredible promo for the main event between Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje at UFC 249, and we couldn't be more hyped for this fight.
Things haven't exactly been straightforward in terms of the preperation for this one.
It was announced on Monday that No.4 ranked lightweight Gaethje would replace current champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 249.
Of course, number one contender Tony Ferguson was billed to face the undefeated Russian, with Khabib's lightweight title on the line, but the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has put an end to the fight, with Khabib unable to travel after Russia closed its borders due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The match-up between Ferguson and Gaethje has been met with a mixed response among MMA fans, after Khabib vs Tony was cancelled for a fifth time.
But many have agreed that they are hyped for the bout after seeing this promo.
Dana White posted the video on Twitter earlier with the caption: "This is gonna be a FUN fight. Just a little over a week and we will be watchin a LIVE fight again!!!"

Things have been up in the air in terms of whether UFC 249 would go ahead or not but in a recent interview, UFC president White has announced that they are close to securing a private island to host fights.
"I am a day or two away from securing a private island," White told ESPN.
"I have a private island that I've secured; we're getting the infrastructure put in now, so I'm gonna start doing the international fights, too.
"With international fighters, because I won't be able to get international fighters into the U.S., I have a private island that I'm gonna start flying them all in and doing international fights from there.
"So as of April 18th, the UFC is back up and running."
