Yesterday, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) gave fight fans a sneak peak of the first promo for the upcoming UFC 249 pay-per-view (PPV) event on May 9, 2020 (see it here), and now it’s giving them the whole dish.
It’s an exciting hype video that will get just about anyone with a pulse pumped for what is expected to be a thrilling interim Lightweight title fight between Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje. While their respective resumes speak for themselves, the highlights of the destruction they’ve both left behind is always fun to watch.
The extended promo highlights the entire main card, which will also see Dominick Cruz face Henry Cejudo for the Bantamweight title in the co-headlining act. Also Francis Ngannou will face Jairzinho Rozenstruick, Anthony Pettis takes on Donald Cerrone, while Jeremy Stephens collides with Calvin Kattar.
Furthermore, Greg Hardy gets his first taste of a pay-per-view (PPV) card as he faces off against Yorgan de Castro. The event — which is set to go down inside VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida — will be a closed-door event.
