After nearly two months since the UFC’s last event, here’s how the pros feel about the return of the Octagon at Saturday’s UFC 249.
Today is Saturday... I only know this because #UFC249 is on!— Nina Ansaroff (@NinaAnsaroff) May 9, 2020
I want to wish the fighters, coaches, training partners, family members, commentators & employees of the #UFC249. Gods speed. Freedom of choice to be there right now is admirable in such uncertain times. I pray it has a positive outcome. All my love to the fight community @ufc ❤️— Gina Carano (@ginacarano) May 9, 2020
