Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson at UFC 249, one of the most anticipated fights for ufc fans. With many sporting events (Laliga, Formula1, Champions league) postponed due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, many are skeptical about whether this bout will go on as scheduled.

It is the fifth time that Khabib and Ferguson have scheduled a fight between them. On four previous occasions, a fight scheduled between them has been canceled.

Fans on Twitter wish that it does not happen for the fifth time. UFC president Dana White seems to have granted their wish for now.

“That fight will happen. It will go on. The fans are all freaking out about that, do not worry. Khabib vs. Tony will happen,” White said as per Brett Okamoto of ESPN.
