A second fight has been announced for the UFC 249 card that's being pieced together for April 18.

Heavyweights Francis Ngannou and Jairzinho Rozenstruik will meet in less than two weeks, as announced by Rozenstruik and confirmed by ESPN's Brett Okamoto.

The two ranked heavyweights were initially scheduled to headline UFC Columbus on March 28, but the event was canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Additionally, UFC president Dana White announced earlier Monday that Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje will meet in an interim lightweight title fight at UFC 249, for which a location has yet to be determined.
