As widely expected, the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) voted unanimously to approve UFC on ESPN 9 and UFC 250, at the UFC APEX, on 5/30 and 6/6 respectively. The NSAC also voted unanimously for the UFC's new COVID-19 protocols, which were in use at three events in Jacksonville, Florida, and has since been refined with commission input. The events will be held in an empty arena, among many, many other measures taken.
UFC on ESPN 9 is headlined by former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley vs. Gilbert Burns, who is on a five-fight win streak. UFC 250 is headline by bantamweight and featherweight champ Amanda Nunes defending her 145 belt vs. Felicia Spencer.
