On Monday, White told ESPN that he secured a location in the United States to host UFC 249 on April 18th.
The event will consist of 12 total fights, and it will be headlined by an interim title fight between Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje. White is expecting to host weekly fights at the new location for at least the next two months.
