Seen talk of Gaethje or Poirier fighting Ferguson. But Gaethje has said a few times in the past that he doesn’t take short notice fights because he needs a full camp to fight the way he does. And Poirier said he’d be up for it the other day but now today he’s saying it doesn’t look like he’s fighting and the UFC haven’t got back to him.

At this point, they might as well just pull the plug. 249 wasn’t meant to be. As much as I’d love to see some fights on the 18th, I’d rather they just keep trying for Khabib vs Ferguson when all this madness dies down. This whole persistence with pushing forward with a cobbled together event seems like it’s more about Dana’s ego than anything. He went on a rant about how this show was going ahead so now he’s going to move heaven and earth just to be right. Now if some semblance of a card goes ahead, they’re in a position where it’s probably only going to be fighters already in the US that they can put on there. So that’s going limit them. Khabib vs Ferguson is already off. We’re going to end up with a dead Fight Night looking card with Ferguson fighting someone like James Vick aren’t we?

I'm at the stage where I want to see the fight happen just to prove Luke Thomas wrong.

In fact, Luke Thomas has accomplished the impossible. I now root for Dana White, because I know Thomas really fucking hates him.

MMA fans and reporters doing the, “Khabib is scared!” thing when there’s an actual, real-life global pandemic going on is both absolutely unbelievable and the most predictable thing to ever happen.

The lad shat it. Probably knows if he beats T-Ferg he'll be facing a fully-fit, on the ball McG next.

So according to Tony Ferguson, Khabib is cacking himself and is just using the convenient excuse of a fucking global pandemic to get out of fighting him. But wait...

I mean, he’s right in that quote of course. And I know better than to try to make sense of Ferguson’s waffle. But the hypocrisy is amazing.

Inane that they are even contemplating trying to salvage anything, 3 weeks out when no one has time to prepare properly, logistically this thing just cant work. What the fuck is happening?

It's just Dana now trying to prove the folk that call him a fat that he can get this done. Hopefully Vince McMahon is leaving him voice messages taunting him about his tits and not getting this done.

While I'm not against watching some fresh fights, it does seem a tad ridiculous to keep this going when the whole point of trying to get it done (Tony v Khabib, finally) is off.

At this stage they'd be as well sticking some fights on TV from the performance centre with fighters who are able to take part. If Khabib ain't man enough, leave him in Putin's pocket until he grows a set.
