WATCH: New UFC 249 Promo Video Dropped By Dana White

We are just over one week away from UFC 249. The pay-per-view event will remind us what it is like to enjoy live sports during the coronavirus pandemic and it will be a welcomed distraction from what’s going on in the real world.

To pump us up, UFC president Dana White — who has taken some criticism for moving forward with the event despite the COVID-19 outbreak — released a promo video for the event in the early hours of the morning on Thursday, April 9.

UFC 249 is headlined by a lightweight bout between Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje for the interim championship.

In the promo, UFC 249 has been dubbed “the most stacked card of the year.” With bouts like Francis Ngannou vs. Jairzinho Rozenstruik, Uriah Hall vs. Ronaldo Souza, Vicente Luque vs. Niko Price, Calvin Kattar vs. Jeremy Stephens, and more, it’s hard to argue that claim for the first quarter of the year.

Check out the promo below.
