UFC fighters won’t be required to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Not now, not ever. At the least in response to Dana White. And The UFC president left no room for interpretation:
“By no means Gonna Occur.”
“I’d 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 selection. You’re by no means gonna hear me say I’m gonna drive individuals to get vaccinated. By no means gonna occur,” stated White through Aaron Bronsteter of TSN.
White’s feedback come at a time when the NFL is pressuring gamers to vaccinate, and varied companies throughout the nation are requiring proof of vaccination as a way to enter their buildings. However White received’t be submitting to any exterior strain:
“I believe lots of people are doing that. They’re telling you in New York you may’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,” stated White. “You wanna get vaccinated? Get vaccinated. In case you don’t, that’s your choice, your physique.”
That pounding on the mat you’re listening to is the pro-vax crowd tapping out.
