During the latest edition of The Joe Rogan Experience (via MMA Junkie), Joe Rogan said that even if Dana White manages to hold UFC 249 next month, he won’t be a part of it due to concerns over the Coronavirus pandemic.

He said: “I guess someone’s going to commentate it – it’s not gonna be me. UFC is talking about putting on a fight on April 18. I don’t know how they’re gonna do that. I don’t know if they’re gonna be able to do that in the United States. They’re talking about doing it in a place with less than 10 people, just in an open arena. The thing is, how are they going to make sure nobody has it?” Rogan said. “You’re going to have to test everybody. And if someone has it, do you let them fight? What if they have it, and they’re like Idris Elba, and they have no symptoms, but they’ve got the corona? What if Khabib has the corona? Or what if Tony has the corona? Does Khabib even fight him? This fight is so cursed. This is how Dana feels. This is why Dana’s trying so hard to make it happen, even if there’s only 10 people in the room.
