UFC 249 On May 9 Is A Seriously Stacked Card

published ata year ago

You've got to hand it for UFC for putting together a tasty-looking card in the circumstances and it seems as though Dana White is still eager to give fight fans their fix.

In fact, the UFC president has revealed he is close to securing a private island where they will host fights during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"I am a day or two away from securing a private island," White told TMZ.

"I have a private island that I've secured; we're getting the infrastructure put in now, so I'm gonna start doing the international fights, too.

"With international fighters, because I won't be able to get international fighters into the U.S., I have a private island that I'm gonna start flying them all in and doing international fights from there.

"So as of April 18th, the UFC is back up and running."

In an unprecedented but wholly exciting move, White plans to have fights taking place every week on the island and says UFC have their own planes to fly talent in and out.
