The UFC won’t force fighters to get vaccinated.
Right now, there is a major push in sports and across America to get as many people vaccinated as possible, and the NFL has made life a living hell for the unvaccinated players in the league. UFC president Dana White is taking a very different approach.
“This is part of what’s going to happen in the future, but I’m not putting any restrictions on any of my people and forcing them to do anything. I’ve never forced anybody to do anything, let alone take a shot you might not be comfortable with. It’s not me. It’s not what I would ever do,” White said during a Tuesday interview with Pat McAfee when talking about coronavirus and fighters potentially getting sick.
