HEARNE on the UFC 249: “It is incredible. I would not be allowed to hold this tournament”

The head of Matchroom’s Eddie Hearn shared his feelings regarding the organization of the upcoming UFC 249. Despite the pandemic of coronavirus, the UFC reported that on April 18 the tournament will take place.

“It’s incredible. Even I wouldn’t organize a tournament right now. I don’t even think about options.

Think it’s the stubbornness of the white. That’s what makes it a success, but at some point you have to lean back in his chair and show the white flag.

I am very surprised that ESPN is promoting this show, it is obvious that they want ratings and money. But with Sky Sports and DAZN I would not be allowed to hold the event right now,” said Hearn.

Recall that in the main fight of the tournament, Tony Ferguson will meet with Justin Gatei, who replaced Habib Nurmagomedov.
