UFC 250 fighters find ways to train despite lockdown: ‘It should be postponed’

The UFC is trying to keep the ball rolling amid a global coronavirus pandemic, but more events could be forced to change dates or locations. UFC 249 is still promised to go down April 18 at an unknown venue, but the following pay-per-view show is still set for Sao Paulo.

The most populous city in the southern hemisphere held eight UFC Fight Night events in the past, and the state has recorded 1,406 of the 3,904 coronavirus cases in Brazil as of Saturday night’s official numbers. That number would be even higher if the government was doing more testing.
