UP FOR THE TEST<\/strong><\/strong><\/p>

Tony Ferguson has shared the moment he had an eight-inch coronavirus swab shoved up his nose in a brutal test before UFC 249.<\/p>

The 36-year-old American faces Justin Gaethje, 31, for the interim lightweight title on Saturday night, the UFC’s second event during the Covid-19 crisis.<\/p>

Fighters were assured by the promotion that both swab and antibody tests will be carried out on athletes with results available before Fight Night.<\/p>

Swab tests can detect if a person currently has Covid-19, while the antibody is conducted via a blood sample and tells you if you have had it.<\/p>

ESPN report that daily checks will include testing for temperatures and questions about coronavirus symptoms.<\/p>

THAT’S TWO BAD<\/strong><\/p>\n<\/p>\n

Aston Villa boss Dean Smith says he will be without two key players in their survival fight due to health concerns.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

The stars cannot be named due to patient confidentiality but it underlines another huge hurdle clubs face — even if football returns behind closed doors next month.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

MAC IS BACK<\/strong><\/p>\n<\/p>\n

Conor McGregor is “ready” to return after weeks of lockdown training and could make his comeback on the UFC’s new “Fight Island”.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

The Irishman recorded his first win inside the octagon for three years in January, knocking Donald Cerrone out in just 40 seconds.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

With several states banning professional sports, UFC president Dana White revealed he has acquired a private island to host events, which he hopes will be up and running by June.<\/p>\n

It could feature the return of McGregor, despite the UFC due to suffer a massive loss in ticket sales.<\/p>\n

White said: “Conor’s been ready to fight for a while. He’s in shape. He’s ready to go.”<\/p><\/p>\n”,”raw”:”
