  1. Why would it have to be all European versus European or whatever……… It could be South American versus European. It can be Asian versus European. It could be Australia versus European. Should I go on?

  2. In theory, won't fighters that fight on fighter's island need to be quarantined for two weeks when they get there, and then two weeks in america when they get back? so a month of quarantine total for one fight unless the situation changes…..

  3. This was a great podcast. So cool to hear the coverage of the web conference from Alans point of view as a fighter. I read that Dana wanted for him Sean and Mick to focus on the fighters on those 4 or 5 cards that lost their fights due to this to be the first priority. The new UFC 250 card as of now is sick of now. As of now Tony is expected to fight Justin Gaethje for the Interim UFC Lightweight Championship. Here is a link to the rest of the card. https://twitter.com/espnmma/status/1250244669595955201/photo/1. I think they made it that sick just in case fighters or their team doesnt feel comfortable fighting they can still have a bad ass card. I heard they were looking at California Texas or Florida. I think Dana hopes the location isnt revealed cause of the politics that happened after UFC 249 went to hell after being revealed in Fresno, California. I agree with Alan, I see at least the first 2 cards there at this location. I think the end goal is to have the UFC Apex be the home base for shows at least thru the end of the year cause Dana wants to still do 42 shows that they were contracted to for 2020. I think there may be double shows in a week once we get going to get back on track. I know fighters like Aiemann Zahabi have tweeted that they are worried about not fighting 3 times this year cause of this. I wonder too if there will be a panel like Karyn hosts once they get going. Maybe not May 9th but once they get going at the APEX I can see them at least doing studios shows or have the panel from their homes cause not sure how that is worked for ESPN+ if they have to give them a certain amount of shows on there a year.
