“This isn’t just some crazy, this is a well thought out plan. We’ve had very, very smart people, doctors, and people that have been involved with the UFC for a very long time working on this thing non-stop since it started. We believe that we have this thing in a place where it can be as safe as it can possibly be,” he added.
This Saturday’s affair will be part of UFC’s trio of events which will also be watch on 13 and 16 May in Jacksonville, Florida.
