UFC President Dana White can’t say for certain when the promotion’s schedule will get back on track due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic but he promises the highly anticipated fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson will go down April 18.

After cancelling their next three shows on March 21, March 28 and April 11 due to warnings about mass gatherings, White vowed that UFC 249 will move forward even if that meant getting creative with a location and venue for the show.

On Wednesday, the New York State Athletic Commission shut down any hope that UFC 249 would take place in Brooklyn as originally scheduled. Still, White is confident that the UFC will eventually find a place to hold the card so Nurmagomedov and Ferguson can finally clash after four previous fights between them were cancelled.

I think we learned from Brasilia that UFC fights don't come across the same without a live crowd.
