Someone had to be first back, and president Dana White's aggressive approach will pay off on Sunday (NZT) when UFC 249 takes place in Jacksonville, Florida to bring welcome relief to sports fans across the globe.

While Khabib Nurmagomedov's inability to leave Russia (for obvious reasons) means we won't see his long-awaited match-up against Tony Ferguson, fight fans will still be treated to what should be a spectacle of a clash between the interim champion and top contender Justin Gaetjhe.

The rest of the card is stacked right though the early prelims, and we'll take a close look at all the match ups that matter.

Anthony Pettis is also on board for chat about his second bout against Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone, and we also catch up with WWE NXTUK star Travis Banks.
