Fight promoter Dana White says he has plans to buy a private island to hold UFC events while the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
The 50-year-old says he's just "one or two days away" while assuring fans that the company will not fold despite tough economic conditions.
White is adamant that UFC 249 will go ahead at at "top secret venue" on April 18, with fights every week over a two-month period.
The UFC president revealed that athletes and staff flown by private planes to this mystery island will be "tested and tested." No fans will be allowed on the island.
"We've been working on this thing since the world fell apart. Every day when we would work on something, we'd wake up the next day and the world would change, so this has definitely been the hardest thing that I've ever tried to do, ever," he told TMZ Sports.
"So I locked this venue up for two months. I have this venue for two months, I'm setting up shop here. We're gonna be pumping out fights every week.
"I am also a day or two away from securing a private island, I have a private island that I've secured, we're getting the infrastructure put in now, so we're gonna start doing international fights, too, with international fighters.
"Cause I won't be able to get international fighters, all of em, into the US, so I have a private island, I'm gonna fly em all into the private island and have em doing international fights from there.
"So as of April 18, the UFC is back up and running."
