The MMA/UFC Thread

Has the UFC officially called the fight off? Surely Putin can make an exception for Khabib. He is a fan of the sport and also Khabib.

Apparently an exception has been made for Khabib, and he can fly out to do the fight in the USA

But surely they can't proceed with a full fight card in this situation. Like, even if you do it behind closed doors and have no other fight except Tony/Khabib. You'll still have 3 corner-men for each of them, a ref, a full TV production crew, judges, medical team...it's just too many people. And you're still travelling, people will be eating at restaurants around the venue, staying in hotels...

Not worth the risk IMO. Best to just delay this fight till everything clears.

Also they will not get the permission as well. There will be a gathering of atleast 50 people to get this going. Not worth it.

Plenty of time at home. Started with UFC 1. First ever match and the sumo guy got a brutal kick into the face right off the bat. Very raw. All of them owned by jiu jitsu.

There are 2 more events on 13th and 16th and apparently Dana is planning an other event on 23rd, all in his "private fight island".
