UFC President Dana white commented on the cancellation of UFC 249, which should have been held on April 18. In the main fight Tony Ferguson and Justin Geti had to challenge the WBC interim champion.

“Today we got a call from the highest level and he told me not to hold this event on Saturday. We have an amazing relationship with ESPN. So when they call and ask me not to do, obviously, I will respect this and not to do.

It was a battle from the very first day. We fought without a break for days and nights due to this pandemic, to hold this event on April 18.

All the men with whom I have a contract, I want them to feel safe, spend time with their families and enjoy this time. Don’t worry about the financial part, you’ll get your fights on the contract. I’ll take care of the largest possible number of people and will do everything possible so that they feel comfortable.

The fans promise that the UFC will be the first one back on the TV. We will be back very soon,” said white.

Note that because of the pandemic coronavirus UFС 249 had planned for the site of a former Indian reservation. And future tournaments wanted to organize on a private island.
