Early this week we released that Dana, president of the UFC was planning to host UFC 249 and any future events on a private island in an undisclosed location as per his claims. However, it turns out that was never his plan all along.
The fights were actually going to be held on a Native land at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino Resort in Lemoore, California, this was apparently confirmed by Dana to reporter Brett Okamoto at ESPN.
In an interview, White also confirmed that:
Thrills from your living room
© Disney The Tron roller coaster at Disneyland in Shanghai Thanks to some roller coaster enthusiasts on YouTube, GoPro cameras and 4K, you can taste without leaving your home, to the sensations that certain attractions of Disneyland Shanghai or Hollywood Universal Studios provide. If your children are small enough to hold a cloth in a basket, you can even imitate this awesome dad, whose DIY simulation video has gone viral.

However, White's stubbornness knows no limits and he told Okamoto that he still plans to promote 42 other events this year.
A statement on— UFC (@ufc) :
With almost the whole world on lockdown or practising social distancing due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, we can only imagine that he'll be promoting more events that are already dead before they start.
