Daniel Cormier believes UFC 249 will happen, not as confident about full fight schedule afterwards

It’s hard to believe anybody wants to see Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson fight on schedule more than UFC president Dana White, but Daniel Cormier might be that guy.

The former two-division champion, who has worked with Nurmagamedov for the majority of his UFC career, has been looking forward to this colossal showdown for several years after the fight has been booked and then scrapped on four previous occasions.

Now with the coronavirus pandemic shutting down sporting events across the globe, it almost feels like Nurmagomedov and Ferguson are cursed to never meet.
