UFC fighters is not going to be required to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Not now, not ever. No less than in keeping with Dana White. And The UFC president left no room for interpretation:
“By no means Gonna Occur.”
“I might by no means inform one other human being what to do with their physique. If you wish to get vaccinated, that’s as much as you. That’s your alternative. You’re by no means gonna hear me say I’m gonna drive individuals to get vaccinated. By no means gonna occur,” stated White by way of Aaron Bronsteter of TSN.
White’s feedback come at a time when the NFL is pressuring players to vaccinate, and varied companies throughout the nation are requiring proof of vaccination with a view to enter their buildings. However White received’t be submitting to any exterior stress:
“I feel lots of people are doing that. They’re telling you in New York you possibly can’t go right into a restaurant or a fitness center except you’re vaccinated and may show it and issues like that. Some individuals are getting fired in the event that they don’t get vaccinated. Yeah, that’s not gonna occur right here,” said White. “You wanna get vaccinated? Get vaccinated. In the event you don’t, that’s your resolution, your physique.”
That pounding on the mat you’re listening to is the pro-vax crowd tapping out.
