UFC 249 was held Saturday in Jacksonville, Florida’s Veterans Memorial Arena, the night of mixed martial arts bouts marking the first return of a major pro sports event since the pandemic shutdowns.

Justin Gaethje beat Tony Ferguson in the main event. There were no fans, the octagon was disinfected between bouts, and testing and masks were required for nearly everyone there. The UFC has two more fight nights scheduled this week in Jacksonville, beginning Wednesday.
