HEALTH AND SAFETY DECLARATION
Health and safety has long been a priority for the UFC and we have set the standards for our industry. In light of current circumstances, we plan to implement new and improved security measures as we resume production of live events.
UFC events scheduled for May 9, May 13 and May 16 at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida will be fully sanctioned by the Florida State Boxing Commission and will comply with all regulations governing MMA professional events. We have worked closely with our medical staff and state and local officials, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry, and Florida State Boxing Commission executive director Patrick Cunningham, to ensure that appropriate health and safety protocols are in place.
As requested by the Florida State Boxing Commission, these events will be closed to the public and will be produced with only essential personnel. All athletes and staff will be required to follow a number of precautionary measures, such as participating in advanced medical examinations and temperature checks and following social distancing guidelines.
On behalf of fans, athletes and staff, the UFC thanks Governor Ron DeSantis, Mayor of Jacksonville, Lenny Curry, Executive Director of the Florida State Boxing Commission, Patrick Cunningham, and our media partners, including ESPN and ESPN +, for their support as we resume our events.
