UFC fans with tickets for Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal’s welterweight title rematch have been warned they risk death.
Up to 15,000 fans are expected to head to UFC 261 next month in Jacksonville, Florida, as the UFC welcomes back fight fans for the first time in over a year on US soil.
There have been 33,000 Covid-19 deaths in Florida though crowds are permitted to return for fight night at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena.
Though there is an understandable risk with each ticket holder being warned of the potential outcome with the card having originally been scheduled to be held in Singapore.
Fine print on each ticket warns that attendance: "may result in severe and permanent damage to the health of the Holder and/or others, including but not limited to, death, fever, weight loss, irreversible pulmonary, respiratory and/or neurological system damage, loss of taste or smell, mental or emotional distress, temporary or permanent disability, loss of income, loss of employment, loss of financial or other opportunities, medical expenses."
UFC president Dana White had revealed that pre-sale tickets meant the event will be the best attended at the arena.
“Right now, we’re at the pre-sale in Jacksonville. We broke the arena record already,” White said.
“So I expect this thing to go on sale tomorrow and sell out in seconds. And we broke the arena record on the pre-sale.
“I was saying this morning to people. Everybody’s talking about they’re first, they’re first. They’re not first. We’re first. Nobody’s gonna do it like we’re gonna do it.
“They’re talking about outdoor arenas, most of them probably won’t sell out. Social distancing, all that stuff.”
