Check out the new video promo for UFC 249: Ferguson vs. Gaethje

The last time the UFC released a video promo for UFC 249, they were forced to cancel the event.

Let’s hope the same doesn’t happen in light of the UFC’s brand new video promo for Tony Ferguson vs. Justin Gaethje, which is set to take place at the VyState Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida on May 9.

The new promo was released Monday via Twitter.

Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje will collide for the interim lightweight title in the UFC 249 main event, with the winner expected to take on Khabib Nurmagomedov in a title unification bout later in September. In the co-main event, Henry ‘Triple C’ Cejudo will defend his bantamweight strap against UFC veteran and former 135-pound king Dominick Cruz.

Here’s the full, stacked fight card, courtesy of Bloody Elbow’s Mookie Alexander.
