Fans split over UFC 249 being canceled just days after finding a new main event and location.
The logistics behind UFC 249 have been a roller coaster ride. The event seemed doomed from the start as the world coronavirus epidemic began to spread. New York being an epicenter for the virus forced the UFC to UFC 249 from Brooklyn to a reservation in California. Also, headliner Khabib Nurmagomedov was forced out of the event and replaced with Justin Geathje. Then co-main event fight Rose Namajunas left the card due to personal reasons. Now the event is off altogether and people are reacting.

As much as we’re desperate for sports today, #UFC249 not taking place is a good idea. Putting people’s health at danger for short-term satisfaction was never ever exceptional.

100% the best relocation. I ‘d of enjoyed naturally. Attempting to put on a PPV in this environment and environment was psychological! When things are more included and danger isn’t at such a high level, we can now look forward to ideally seeing the battles later on down the line! #UFC249 https://t.co/tnYnoGU6PS
