UFC Apex or Fight Island to host live card in May

Last week the promotion was forced to cancel its “locked and loaded” UFC 249 fight card as well as a number of following events amid coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Nevertheless, May 9 is the date indicated for the next live show, that is expected to be held at to be determined location. This could be either UFC Apex in Las Vegas or a Fight Island, somewhere.

“We built the APEX facility next door just in time to save the day from this pandemic,” UFC President Dana White said in an email statement to Variety. “Live fights will be produced out of there starting next month and for the foreseeable future.”

Although the bouts are only “verbally agreed”, the list of matchups includes Tony Ferguson up against Justin Gaethje, Henry Cejudo faceoff Dominick Cruz, Amanda Nunes vs. Felcia Spencer.
