As first reported by Jeff Sherwood of Sherdog, UFC 249 will take place from the former home of the WEC and legendary home of MMA, the Tachi Palace in Lemoore, Ca.
In case you were wondering, the Tachi Palace is on a Native American reservation and is not subject to federal law. Or so we thought…. Public Law 280 exits for reasons like this.
The New York Times have now reported the event and MMA journalists will probably work to get the fight cancelled.
