Dana White says that the UFC is talking with some states as they begin to start opening up to fans about shows, and addressed the possibility of doing shows with limited audience capacity. During the post-UFC on ESPN 10 press conference (per MMA Weekly), White said that the company is talking to those states that are considering opening events to fans.

Asked about when he might start having shows with fans, White said, “I think it’s gonna depend on — you know, this whole thing is state by state, or country by country. I know that there’s a couple of states right now looking to open up to fans. And we’re talking to them.”

“Yeah, I won’t do that,” he said when asked if he would do a show with fans social distancing in attendance. “I won’t do a 50% arena. I’ll just stay here. It makes more sense to stay here.”
