UFC President Dana White has revealed what he has been getting up to during the coronavirus pandemic.
The 50-year-old gave fans a tour of his huge mansion during an Haute TV video, showing off his impressive swimming pool.
White also said he has been working on his jump shot at his indoor basketball court, improving his fighting skills in his arcade room and working out in his gym.
Of course, most of his time has been spent preparing for UFC 249 which is set to take place on May 9 at the Vystar Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.
“Every morning when I get up, I start work and I check in with my executive team and we make sure all of our employees and all of our fighters and their families are healthy and safe,” said White.
“Then we start working on the fight. We’re going live on ESPN+ pay-per-view with Tony Ferguson vs Justin Gaethje for the interim lightweight championship – and that’s what I’ve been doing while I’m quarantined.”
The card also features Donald Cerrone vs Anthony Pettis, Henry Cejudo vs Dominick Cruz and Francis Ngannou vs Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
Despite the coronavirus pandemic, the UFC chief is also aiming to run events on May 13 and May 16 at the same venue.
“They want to fight, People are hitting us up and want to fight,” he told ESPN.
“We’re putting together three cards in a week. People who want to fight are going to get fights.”
Despite concerns over the safety of his staff, White has insisted social-distancing regulations will be in place.
He is also working on ‘Fight Island’ as a future location to host events, although the idea has been a major source of controversy in recent weeks.
