The COVID-19 pandemic is still going on and a Delta Variant is causing concern in many places. There is a vaccine, but also a pushback due to political and other reasons. UFC fighters don’t have to worry about being forced to take the vaccine.

While speaking to TSN, Dana White confirmed that the UFC will never force their fighters to get vaccinated. This is something he says is their choice.

“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.”

This one kind of goes without saying. Dana White is a huge fan of the right and he has aligned himself with many antivaxxer talking points. Still, it is now 100% definite that the UFC will never make their fighters get vaxxed.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
