Former two-division UFC champion Randy Couture has stated that Dana White’s proposal to hold events on a so-called “Fight Island” represents a serious health and safety hazard to his fighters during the COVID-19 crisis.

White has remained steadfast in his stance of keeping his show on the road, despite the various coronavirus restrictions that have prompted most major sporting bodies to shut up shop for an indefinite period of time.

White’s plans were dealt a blow when he was forced to shelve plans to hold UFC 249 on tribal land in California following pressure from senior ESPN and Disney executives.

White has pledged that his “Fight Island” idea, where fighters will compete against each other on an as-yet-unnamed island to ease COVID-19 concerns,  will be up and running before long.

Couture, though, isn’t a fan of the plan.
