Dana White Says Full Schedule To Resume After UFC 249, Weekday Events May Be Held


The coronavirus has been causing a plethora of issues worldwide and it even caused the UFC to postpone a total of three events.

There are no UFC events scheduled until UFC 249 on April 18, but UFC President Dana White says the promotion will resume a full schedule after UFC 249 concludes.

“The fights that were rescheduled, I need to knock them out, I need to squeeze them in somewhere, and yes, we will resume our regular schedule,” White told Kevin Iole Yahoo Sports (via Danny Segura of MMA Junkie). “They might be with no crowd, they might be somewhere else. I don’t know how this is going to play out over the next several months, but these fights will happen, and I will have them.”

Currently, only three UFC events have been postponed, with those events being UFC Fight Night London, UFC Fight Night Columbus and UFC Fight Night Portland.

White also says some additional UFC cards could be taking place during the week instead of the traditional Saturday times.

“To make up for these events that we’re supposed to happen, they might be on a Wednesday, they might be on a Friday,” White said.

No location has been revealed yet for UFC 249 or any additional UFC cards that White was hoping to run in the near future.
