UFC President Dana white after the cancellation of UFC 249 stated that fans will not have to wait long for MMA fights. Functionary hoped that within a month the UFC will return and will hold tournaments on a private island.
“I told all my guys not to worry, because we will have a tournament on the island. Obviously, we organize it. We have created the necessary infrastructure and launched it. Closer to the tournament I will start to book the fights and tell the guys to ready. Plus I can deliver soldiers to the place before, and they will have the opportunity to train on the island.
To do it, we need about a month. After this time I arrange them and the guys will be able to start training on the island. I am sure that in a month people will be ready to leave their homes to go to train on the island. We will do everything and will have a tournament. I could hold it next week, but it turned out the way it did. See you next month, “said white.
