In an attempt to inform their fighters about the pandemic, an information session is going to be held for those fighters by the promotion and UFC President Dana White is going to be a part of both sessions.
MMA Fighting obtained an email sent by the UFC to their fighters detailing the coronavirus information sessions:
We are going through an unprecedented time with the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to communicate with you first about upcoming events for the remainder of the year as well as help answer any questions you might have about training, fights, health, safety and more.
Please join UFC President, Dana White, for a WebEx meeting where he will discuss all of the relevant information. WebEx sessions will be available starting on Friday, April 17th at 2:30pm PT/5:30 pm ET and Monday, April 20th at 10:00am PT/1:00pm ET and 5pm PT/8pm ET. Athletes are asked to join (1) informational session and translators will be provided.
This information session is supposed to just be for the fighters, as managers and other outside parties won’t be invited to either session.
WorldOMeters reports that 2,231,990 people have been diagnosed with the virus worldwide, with 153,252 of those folks passing away due to the coronavirus.
