UFC 249 turned out to be a very successful venture for Dana White and the UFC. According to an article by Kevin Iole via Yahoo Sports, UFC 249 PPV buys will surpass 700,000 — a remarkable feat considering the star of the fight card Khabib Nurmagomedov had to drop out of the main event due to travel restrictions amid the Corona virus.
“We absolutely destroyed it,” White told Yahoo Sports via phone call. “It was a home run by every measure. The early trends were good and they continued.”
Originally slated for April 18th at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, White was forced to postpone UFC 249 due to COVID-19. White successfully located the PPV event to VyStar Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, FL.
