U.F.C. 249, a combined martial arts showcase that had been scheduled for April 18 on Native American tribal land in California, has been canceled amid the coronavirus pandemic, Dana White, the U.F.C. president, stated Thursday.
White said in an interview on ESPN that he had obtained calls from Disney and ESPN asking him to face down from the occasion. ESPN holds the rights to broadcast U.F.C. fights and promote its pay-per-view occasions, and Disney is the father or mother firm of ESPN.
This is a breaking story and will probably be up to date.
