Yeah here in Alaska pretty close to Russia and similarly rural for most part we are having minor amounts.
Oddly the majority of reported case near me are in the Villages but I'm sure Anchorage is quite nasty.
Unless they test all parties and do it in a remote area they will all be at risk "UFC 249"
Had some old lady giving me a talking to about social distancing at the store, first its about the stupidest solution to an easy problem.
Either hide in your house, or just wash your hands dont touch your face and go about your business.
We all gonna die just wont be today..worrying wont add a minute being smart thats another story.
Stay healthy people and remember dont drink bleach or buy miracle curse thats my psa for the year.

COVID-19 really needs a specific temperature range to go rampant. It prefers moderate to subtropical climates. It's likely it will disappear completely in Russia over winter.

Nurmagomedov vs. Ferguson
Tony Ferguson, SUB, R4
This is without a doubt one of the most highly anticipated fights in UFC history, i am just praying that it actually goes ahead and there is nothing that causes it to be cancelled. it really is a tough fight to call, on paper you would say that khabib by decision would be the likely outcome and i dont think thats unfair to say at all. the thing is tony ferguson is a savage!! he busts peoples face up continuously with elbows and punches from a variety of styles and angles and on top of that he can do it all from his back aswell, throw in on top of that his submission threats off of his back he really does have valid routes to victory in this fight. khabib`s game plan is very one dimentional its just that one thing he does, he is literally elite at and noone has been able to stop him. ferguson has the tools to undoubtably be khabib`s biggest challenge of his carear because when khabib takes you down and has top control this is usually his safe zone as he is in control however when fighting someone as unique as tony Ferguson whos known for being able to do heavy amounts of damage from his back and submit people off his back, this cannot be concidered a safe place for khabib to be dispite how dominant he is from the top position. i am not saying at all that khabib wont maul ferguson like he has basically everyone else because despite all of ferguson`s attributes and abilities that may well still happen. the safe guess for this fight is to go with what usually happens in khabib fights, he tires people down with his vicious takedown to ground and pound routine until they gas and then either TKO`S them or submits them, i dont see him finishing ferguson due to his extremely good cardio and willingness to fight back from adversity so a khabib decision is the "safe bet" but im going to go for a bit more of a risk and say ferguson pulls off the upset catching a tiring khabib in a sub late on in the 4th round. i would love nothing more than for Ferguson to pull of the upset and dethrown khabib. but right now the main thing is praying that this fight actaully goes ahead!!

Cutelaba vs. Ankalaev II
Magomed Ankalaev, TKO, R1
well the first attempt at this fight was a shambles.... awful referee decision to stop it and embarrassing way to get a loss for Cutelaba. whether Cutelaba was hurt by any of the shots from Ankalaev is a bit unknown but he for sure wasnt hurt enough for the fight to be stopped, my opinion is that he was playing possom to try to sucker Ankalaev in to land a big overhand shot with the element of suprise. but regardless he paid the price for playing a risky game. nethertheless i think when the fight happens again the end result will be the same, Cutelaba will come out fast again and if he doesnt get caught with something in the first round that ends it again he will be gassed and get smashed in the second, he does have a punchers chance as he does have power but Ankalaev is just a much better striker than him, and has a much more varied arsenal. i think this will be a war from the start with heavy shots thrown all over the place but ultimately Ankalaev will stand tall when its all finished.

Makhachev vs. Hernandez
Islam Makhachev, DEC
i cannot stand Makhachev in the slightest however i also cannot deny his talent... Hernandez is tough and because of that i dont think Makhachev will finish him but i think its going to be a clear decisive decision win for him.

Stephens vs. Kattar
Calvin Kattar, TKO, R2
Jeremy stephens has a punchers chance but thats about it, Calvin Kattar is violent and technical with good cardio and conditioning i think Kattar finishes Stephens in the second when he starts to tire but if not then it will be an easy decision win for Kattar pushing him back into title contention talks again.

Rothwell vs. Villante
Ben Rothwell, TKO, R2
Both these guys are way past it and this is probably going to be a very boring fight, Rothwell was getting pieced up by struve until he kicked him straight in the C*** twice which without a doubt affected how the rest of the fight played out....Rothwell should get the win here and at heavyweight, knockouts are more often than not the common way for the fight to end however i dont see this being the sort of finish people are talking about the next day, will be a TKO finish late in the second but would also not be suprised if this results in a very boring decision win for rothwell. Probably a good fight to go a grab another drink and some food...

Magomed Ankalaev posted on his Instagram that he's unable to leave Russia because Russia has closed air communication with all countries, and that "they think there is a 60% chance that his fight WON'T happen at UFC 249".

Today, in his Instagram Live video, Khabib said that he's still in Dagestan and he can't leave Russia because of restricted air communication.

That was a stupid move from khabib to quit united states where tey were both in the same country waiting for the fight. I dont want to say Khabib try to dodge Tony but... Its look like that.

@hyrm he's ducking him. Putin's master plan to  try to make dana do the fight in Russia. Weak ass move by habib shows fear of el cu'cuy the Boogeyman the true lightweight champion.

Word is ufc is looking for a new opponent for Tony.
I can't ******* believe this ********. No other opponent will do.

They were together. Habibi had his whole team this is some ******** nonsense.
