When asked how they intend to make this work in terms of TV Coverage White kept his cards close to his chest, stating, “you’ll see.”
White has talked before about putting UFC events on at the same time in different countries, but this is the first time he’s actually put his money where his mouth is. He also stresses tht it won’t be the last time.
“We’ll be doing a lot of that in the future.”
