Asian UFC fighters left in limbo as London and Las Vegas events ruled out
The UFC has pledged to keep putting in events but cities are rapidly ruling themselves out. Upcoming cards in London and Las Vegas will have to be relocated.
Dana White spoke to ESPN earlier today and was adamant that the cards would take place in new venues,
“The fights will go on, they will continue. We’re not stopping, we will keep finding a way to put on the fights.”
The UFC president said that they were working to find new locations but three cards are currently without a venue, leaving several fighters in the lurch.
Among them is New York based Japanese strawweight Mizuki Inoue who is slated to face Tecia Torres at UFC on ESPN 8 on March 28th (local time). That show had been rescheduled for the UFC Apex Centre in Las Vegas.
Kim Ji-Yeon also faces an anxious wait as the UFC hunts for a venue willing to host its fight cards. The Korean is slated to face Alexa Grasso in a flyweight fight at UFC Austin on June 27th (local time).
