Here’s everything we know about the UFC 250 fight card

Here’s everything we know about the UFC 250 fight card which is headlined by Henry Cejudo vs. Dominick Cruz.

With so much uncertainty and everything changing on a day-to-day basis it’s nice to have one place to come to in order to get the answers you need. That’s what we hope to do here for UFC 250 fight card. We, like you, are just as excited to get the MMA ball rolling again and with UFC 250 on the near horizon, we will be using UFC 249 as a guide for how we can expect UFC 250 to go.

UFC 250 is scheduled for May 9, 2020, and it seems as though that one detail is the only concrete bit of news we have at press time.

Where will the event be held?

The event was originally slated for Rio de Janeiro, Brazil but as Dana White has stated previously, he plans to book a private island to host future events at. There’s also a chance that, if UFC 249 goes off without a hitch, it could be held in the same location, Tachi Palace Casino in Lemoore, CA.

We’ll update the location as soon as we know anything.

Who we know isn’t fighting

We know that Jose Aldo is out of his fight with Henry Cejudo, it was reported on April 8. Former champion, Dominick Cruz, will step in and the headling bout will remain a title fight.

As of April 9, the following Brazilian fighters are also out of their bouts due to visa issues (per MMA Fighting)

  • Mauricio Rua
  • Ketlen Vieira
  • Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
  • Bethe Correia
  • Augusto Sakai
  • Carlos Felipe

Who we think could still be fighting

  • Amanda Nunes vs. Felicia Spencer (Nunes lives in the US so her Brazilian status should not affect her competing)
  • Aleksei Oleinik vs. Fabricio Werdum
  • Blagoy Ivanov (was scheduled to face Sakai, replacement might be found)
  • Marion Reneau (was scheduled to face Vieira, replacement might be found)
  • Pannie Kianzad (was scheduled to face Correia, replacement might be found)
  • Sergey Spivak (was scheduled to face Felipe, replacement might be found)

We will update this story as more information is made available so check back often.

UFC 250 takes place on Saturday, May 9, 2020, live from a location to be determined. Follow along with FanSided MMA for all your news, live results and highlights.
