The official line ups for the UFC fight cards on May 13 and May 16 have been revealed by UFC president Dana White. UFC will have three high profile cards scheduled in a week.
The ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has led to the cancellation of numerous fight cards. UFC was unable to telecast any fights in the month of April and only two-fight cards out of four were telecasted in March. Now the promotion has come guns blazing by bringing up terrific line ups of fight cards starting May 9.
UFC 249 is scheduled to take place on May 9 in Jacksonville, Florida at the Veterans Memorial Arena. The May 13 and May 16 cards will take place in the same venue.
The May 13 card will be headlined by Antony Smith and Glover Texeira with Ben Rothwell vs Ovince Saint Preux serving as the co-main event. On the other hand, the May 16 card will be headlined by Alistair Overeem and Walt Harris with Claudia Gadelha vs Angela Hill serving as the co-main event.
