President Donald Trump will today hold a press conference with 10 leading sports commissioners, from the likes of the NBA, MLB, NFL and many more, and among them will be UFC president Dana White.
Trump is known to be a big UFC fan and has a close personal relationship with White, while there political views seem to align, at least with regards to the coronavirus situation, with both appearing to be bullish about trying to get back to business as soon as possible.
It would be interesting to be a fly on the wheel for the discussion though as other than the UFC, most other major sporting organizations quickly made a decision to stop all their events when the pandemic first started to take hold around the globe, while White pressed on regardless and still intends to host UFC 249 on April 18th.
Here is the full list of major commissioners that will be involved in the discussion.
NBA – Adam Silver
WNBA – Cathy Engelbert
MLB – Rob Manfred
NFL – Roger Goodell
NHL – Gary Bettman
PGA Tour – Jay Monahan
UFC – Dana White
WWE – Vince McMahon
NASCAR – John Middlebrook or Jim France.
MLS – Don Garber
