The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback was among the many who enjoyed the return of major United States professional sports Saturday night. We’re talking, of course, about UFC 249, which was held in Jacksonville, Fla., without fans in the stands.

The Gaethje-Ferguson bout didn’t disappoint. Gaethje manhandled the usually dominant Ferguson to earn the interim UFC lightweight title, which he tossed to the canvas shortly after winning.

Next up for Gaethje? In all likelihood, a title-unification fight Khabib Nurmagomedov.
