The UFC are putting on three events in a week as the sport looks to battle back against the coronavirus pandemic.
President Dana White has been on a mission to get fights back underway after seeing the UFC’s schedule whipped out by the virus.
Originally, UFC 249 had to be scrapped after much deliberation but was rebooked and went ahead at the weekend with a stacked card.
