UFC returns to action this weekend with an action-packed card of action from Florida.
The mixed martial arts organisation comes back after a coronavirus-enforced hiatus on Saturday night in Jacksonville with a 11-fight bill headlined by Tony Ferguson’s clash against Justin Gaethje for the interim lightweight title.
The event will go ahead behind closed doors, but that hasn’t made it immune from criticism with the Covid-19 related death toll in the United States alone approaching 75,000.
