Background

A UFC Lightweight Championship bout between the current champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and former interim champion Tony Ferguson (also The Ultimate Fighter: Team Lesnar vs. Team dos Santos welterweight winner) was slated to headline this event. The pairing has previously been scheduled and cancelled for various reasons on four separate occasions (The Ultimate Fighter: Team McGregor vs. Team Faber Finale, UFC on Fox: Teixeira vs. Evans, UFC 209 and UFC 223) over the last four years. The bout was canceled for a fifth time due to issues related to the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic (see section below).

A featherweight bout between Jeremy Stephens and Calvin Kattar was expected to take place at UFC 248. However, Stephens was removed from the card in mid-January with an injury. The pairing was rescheduled for this event.

A heavyweight bout between Shamil Abdurakhimov and Ciryl Gane was scheduled for the event. However on March 5, it was announced that Gane was forced to pull out from the event after he was struck by a pneumothorax during one of his trainings The bout was eventually scrapped.

A welterweight bout between former Bellator Welterweight Champion Lyman Good and Belal Muhammad was scheduled for this event. The pairing was expected to meet at UFC 205 in November 2016, but Good was pulled after being notified by USADA due to a potential anti-doping violation stemming from an out-of-competition drug test. However on April 4, Good pulled out due to injury and the bout was scrapped.
COVID-19 pandemic

On March 12, New York governor Andrew Cuomo issued an order restricting mass gatherings and sporting events due to the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic. On March 16, UFC president Dana White announced via a letter to employees shared to the public that this event "is still scheduled as planned, but the location may change". On March 18, the New York State Athletic Commission announced that the event would not be sanctioned to take place in Brooklyn, New York. On March 23, White revealed that he already had a new location for this event, but would only confirm that it will be held behind closed doors. He added two days later that the card could feature a different lineup depending on the logistics.

Khabib Nurmagomedov stated on March 30 that he was in Dagestan and his participation in the event could be jeopardized by travel bans related to the pandemic. He stated on April 1 that he would probably not be competing at the event due to those restrictions and reinforced that people should be in quarantine nowadays. He later confirmed that he would compete if a location was given and they were able to move him there, but did not see it happening.

The UFC announced on April 6 that Nurmagomedov will be replaced by former WSOF Lightweight Champion Justin Gaethje and an interim title will be disputed between him and Tony Ferguson. The rest of the card suffered a few changes, with the following fights being added to the card:

A heavyweight bout between former UFC Heavyweight Championship challenger Francis Ngannou and Jairzinho Rozenstruik. The bout was originally scheduled to headline UFC on ESPN: Ngannou vs. Rozenstruik on March 28, but the event was cancelled due to the pandemic.
A heavyweight bout between Greg Hardy and Yorgan de Castro.
A welterweight bout between Vicente Luque and Niko Price.
Islam Makhachev was expected to face Alexander Hernandez at a lightweight bout, but was removed from the event due to travel restrictions and replaced by Omar Morales.
A bantamweight bout between Marlon Vera and former UFC Flyweight Championship challenger Ray Borg.
Ottman Azaitar was expected to face Khama Worthy at a lightweight bout, but was removed from the event due to travel restrictions and replaced by Michael Johnson.
A light heavyweight bout between Ryan Spann and Sam Alvey.

The following fights were removed from the event and are expected to be rescheduled for future cards: a light heavyweight bout between Magomed Ankalaev and Ion Cuțelaba (a rematch from their meeting at UFC Fight Night: Benavidez vs. Figueiredo); a heavyweight bout between Ben Rothwell and Gian Villante; a middleweight bout between Karl Roberson and Makhmud Muradov; a bantamweight bout between Hunter Azure and Umar Nurmagomedov.

A location for the event was not revealed, but Dana White said the UFC's temporary home will host U.S.-based fighters who aren't barred from traveling domestically.

Thank you for the updates! Wonder if Khabib and Tony will ever entertain us all. Agree with the champ about our world pandemic. Our state has been locked down besides essential stuffs. Crazy times. Hope you are well thanks for being here
