UFC 249 appears to be off.
All UFC events are postponed indefinitely due to coronavirus, president Dana White told ESPN.
“This whole thing has been a battle since Day 1, we’ve been fighting nonstop all day and all night since this pandemic started to put on this event on April 18,” White said. “Today we got a call from the highest level you can go at Disney and the highest level at ESPN. … The powers that be there asked me to stand down and not do this event next Saturday.”
White had initially struggled to find a venue before settling on tribal land at the Tachi Palace Casino Resort outside of Fresno, California.
