UFC fighters will not be required to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Not now, not ever. At least according to Dana White. And The UFC president left no room for interpretation:
“Never Gonna Happen.”

“I would never tell another human being what to do with their body. If you want to get vaccinated, that’s up to you. That’s your choice. You’re never gonna hear me say I’m gonna force people to get vaccinated. Never gonna happen,” said White via Aaron Bronsteter of TSN.
White’s comments come at a time when the NFL is pressuring players to vaccinate, and various businesses across the country are requiring proof of vaccination in order to enter their buildings. But White won’t be submitting to any outside pressure:
“I think a lot of people are doing that. They’re telling you in New York you can’t go into a restaurant or a gym unless you’re vaccinated and can prove it and things like that. Some people are getting fired if they don’t get vaccinated. Yeah, that’s not gonna happen here,” said White. “You wanna get vaccinated? Get vaccinated. If you don’t, that’s your decision, your body.”
That pounding on the mat you’re hearing is the pro-vax crowd tapping out.

Libs hate this guy. Which means he is doing many things right.
A commissioner with some common sense. Such a rarity these days. Wow.
Best commissioner in sports, not even close.
courage to stand up to the loud crowd
thank you sir
The only person with balls and integrity when it comes to personal freedom in all of sports. What a joke the professional leagues look like compared to the UFC.
Lets just make Dana White Commissioner of ALL sports. Then maybe I will regain my former interest in pro sports. He is the man!
Liking UFC more and more…so happy to see a commissioner that has common sense and doesn’t take any shit from the woke mob
Love this guy not woke or pc just a plain commonsense dude that knows what’s up perfecto
Amazing. Mr. White has the most courage and common sense I’ve seen in long time. Thank you Mr. White!
