In an interview with Barstool Sports (via MMA Weekly), UFC President Dana White said that his company will not lay off its employees during the Coronavirus pandemic, as other businesses have done. The UFC has had to postpone three events so far, but White has insisted that UFC 249 will happen on April 18.

He said: “A guy wrote today UFC is gonna be laying people off. And he’s f—ing gloating about it. First of all, it’s a f—ing lie. It’s not even true. He saw a statement that Endeavor is laying people off and then he says something like, hey, Dana, you got bosses now. No I don’t motherf—er. You have no idea what my situation is. I don’t care how long this lasts. How long this f—ing goes on. I’m not laying anybody off. It’s not f—ing happening. There’s a lot of things that I will f—ing do to make sure that doesn’t happen. And I make those decisions. So it won’t happen… period!
