Sports are back.
Jacksonville, Fla., will host UFC 249 on Saturday in the first live event from a major United States pro sports organization since COVID-19 turned the sports world upside-down. The stacked card is headlined by a fight between Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje, who will battle for the UFC Interim Lightweight Championship.
There will be no fans in the stands.
