Ronda Rousey is isolating at home with her family. Meanwhile, the sport of MMA is on complete standstill. Bellator and ONE Championship have their upcoming fight cards. As of yesterday, UFC president Dana White was forced to announce the cancellation of UFC 249. He has postponed all future events indefinitely but intends on still creating a UFC Fight Island to host bouts and create a location for fighters to go and train.
“That’s why I’m telling all of my guys not to worry because Fight Island is going to happen. It’s obviously still being, all of the infrastructure is being built right now, getting put in place,” White said to ESPN. “As we get closer to that, then I’ll start figuring out booking fights, getting guys ready. Plus I can ship guys over there earlier and they can start training over there on the island.
“So once that’s all in place, you’re looking at like a month. A month I’ll have that all put together and guys can start training and can go there,” he continued. “I’m sure people are going to be ready to get out of their houses in another month and go to an island somewhere and train. So it’s all coming together, it’s all going to happen. I could go next week but this is what it is, I’ll see you in a month.”
