Prior to the UFC 248 ceremonial weigh-ins held Friday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the lightweights took part in a 249 pre-fight news conference with UFC president Dana White.
The press conference was an effort to promote the upcoming pay-per-view, which takes place April 18 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN2 and ESPN+/UFC Fight Pass.
UFC lightweight champion Nurmagomedov (28-0 MMA, 12-0 UFC) and challenger Ferguson (25-3 MMA, 15-1 UFC) fielded questions from the media for approximately 30 minutes. At the conclusion of the press conference, Nurmagomedov and Ferguson squared off.
