UFC 249 could still be happening on April 18th.
That is, if Dana White secures a private island:
As other sports search for solutions on how to carry out events in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, UFC president Dana White believes he has come up with a creative resolution.
The upcoming UFC 249 event on April 18 was originally scheduled to take place in New York City but was forced to move because of the spread of Covid-19 and bans on public gatherings.
After much speculation about whether the event will go ahead, White told TMZ Sports on Monday that he is a “day or two away” from securing a private island which will host the upcoming event, and subsequent fight nights.
“We’re getting the infrastructure put in now so I’m going to start doing the international fights too,” he said.
UFC Fyre Island, anyone?
