The event on Saturday night continued the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s streak of impressive shows that have taken place in Las Vegas, Nevada during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. While some have suggested that now isn’t the time to be putting on events, the UFC has been able to put together an efficient system that appears to be working better than most other sports out there.

However, that didn’t stop headliner Derrick Lewis from letting the world know what he thinks about those who are choosing not to wear masks.

“Going thought the COVID, you really gotta listen. If they tell you you gotta wear a mask, wear a mask. If they tell you you can’t come into this facility or whatever without wearing a mask, (not) touching people, staying six feet apart, just do it,” Lewis said.

“Me dealing with this, it’s like I’m just happy to listen to whatever they tell me to do because of my kids. If God forbid anything happened to my kids or my wife or family and stuff like that. If I get them sick by me being stubborn, I would be pissed for sure.”
