“Some of the biggest names in combat sports like Conor McGregor, Israel Adesanya, Leon Edwards, and Cris Cyborg have come together to urge everyone around the world to stay at home and continue practicing safe social distancing,” an accompanying press release read.
At present, the MMA industry is effectively paused by the pandemic, though UFC President Dana White is determined to get things running again as soon as possible. The UFC boss is planning on putting on a stacked pay-per-view event at the UFC Apex facility on May 9, which could feature three title fights and a procession of other high-stakes bouts.
