“If you’re a fan, if you’re a media member, you’d stop doubting, I would imagine,” White told TSN. “But maybe not. We’ll see.”

“If you asked me questions 10 days ago, I could answer any question you threw at me. I don’t know a lot of things right now. Think about this: Las Vegas shut down the casinos. I never thought I’d ever see that in my lifetime. Khabib and Tony is going to happen. We’re going to make it happen. It’s just going to be a matter of how quickly it would go back to being normal.

“I have my own arena,” White said. “I have my own production. I have everything. I have everything you need to put on events. So there isn’t much that I can’t pull off.”

The Nevada State Athletic have not allowed UFC events to be hosted at the UFC Apex Center in Las Vegas. This had been a contingency plan for the promotion in regards to the latest cancelled events. As of now there is no clear alternative as to where UFC 249 will be hosted.
