UFC 249 reportedly happening sooner than expected but probably not

Let me be clear right up front. If mid to late April is not a safe time to hold an event neither is early May. Something is broken inside the mind of the machine named Dana White.

Fight Island – An Interesting Proposition

Now it’s official that 249 has been moved and that we won’t be seeing some crazy fight island fantasized in Dana White’s dreams, but the proposition of moving events away from strict regulatory bodies does bring up some interesting questions – as things move forward, it’s extremely unlikely we’ll ever see a suggestion so far … Read more
