The coronavirus has caused a plethora of issues for the MMA community, with the UFC having already postponed three events due to the pandemic.
Former two division UFC champion Daniel Cormier says once the coronavirus pandemic comes to an end, fans can expect to see plenty of massive fight cards from the UFC.
“There’s nothing right now. We’re essentially in a holding pattern,” Cormier said on Believe You Me (via Jed Meshew of MMA Fighting). “The UFC is on pause. Not even the UFC, the whole world is on pause right now. All sports, everything that entertains. So it’s just a wait and see. But you know what you can look forward to as an athlete is knowing that when the UFC returns, you’re going to be a part of some massive fight cards. Because all these fights have to happen, and as long as the UFC is on pause, the UFC is not making any money. So when the UFC comes back, they have to make all that money that’s supposed to be made over the course of the year, so they’re going to put on massive fight cards every single week until the end of the year and I cannot wait to be a part of it. Superfight after superfight after superfight, super fight card after super fight card, super card, super card. It’s gonna be like the UFC back in the day when there was one every couple of months and you got massive cards every time.”
There isn’t going to be too long of a wait for UFC fans to see more action, as next month’s UFC 249 card is still taking place, just in an empty arena setting.
UFC President Dana White recently stated that all the postponed fights are going to be rescheduled, but didn’t elaborate any further on how that would be accomplished.
