The highly-anticipated UFC 249 meeting between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson has not yet been officiailly called off, though with Khabib and Russia and travel bans in place, it seems a long shot to go ahead.

White has committed to getting an event off the ground, pulling in fighters at late notice from around the States, though it will take a miracle to pull it off.
