The Corona Virus pandemic definitely dis-stabilized the UFC forcing the biggest MMA promotion to postpone three of their events and UFC 249, the only event removed from the cancelling list got hit too, starting with the withdrawal of UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, who got stocked in Russia, due to travel restrictions before a whole card fall out.
