Open Thread: UFC 249 Cancelled

UPDATE: UFC 249 has been canceled

  • UFC 249 was cancelled Thursday after Disney CEO Bob Chapek and ESPN head Jimmy Pitaro asked Dana White to back down from his plan to run live events.

I will be posting my thoughts on the entire situation and fallout on Friday evening.

In the meantime, use this discussion thread to talk about the cancellation of UFC 249, what the future of MMA might look like or anything else you might want to discuss.
