Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are back with the MMA Vivisection PRELIMS SHOW, breaking down a set of seven prelims on the UFC 249 PPV card this weekend, Sat. May 9th, 2020.
It’s finally fight week again. After days, weeks, maybe even years without a UFC card, MMA is back on our radar, and in a serious way. With five events cancelled so far in 2020 (and likely many more in the process of being moved and rescheduled) the UFC wanted to make a point with their UFC 249 PPV card. This needed to be an event fans couldn’t afford to miss. And for the most part, it seems like that’s what they’ve managed. Two title fights, and ten former champions and title contenders all told, with numerous name veterans to fill out the rest of the evening.
For those fans who want to dive further into the UFC 249 undercard, check out the Prelims with us right here, the Main Card will post here on our YouTube Channel in an hour.
