While most professional sports have shut down, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is still hoping to put on mixed martial arts fights during the coronavirus pandemic.

UFC promoter Dana White intends to put on his UFC 249 pay-per-view broadcast next month despite major problems in finding a venue and fighters willing to participate in the event. He refuses to say where the event, which is scheduled to take place on Apr. 18, will ultimately take place.

“Believe me, people have been talking about that,” White said of the potential for holding UFC 249 on an aircraft carrier. “I haven’t resorted to that yet, but that’s probably coming soon.”

White, an avid supporter of President Donald Trump who hosted the President at a UFC event last year, blames the fake news media for making it so difficult for him to promote a fight during the pandemic.

“A lot of these media guys are absolute and total f**king scumbags,” he said. “As soon as you let them know what you’re doing, all they’re trying to do is f**k up everything that you’ve worked. So I’ve literally told every one of these guys to go f**k themselves and I’m not telling any of them what I’m doing, where I’m doing it.”

Former UFC champion and outspoken bad boy Colby Covington has a suggestion for White on where to hold the event: the White House lawn. Covington offered to fight another former UFC champion Tyron Woodley in a free exhibition at any time.

“‪The offer still stands UFC. I’ll go full Teddy Roosevelt & beat the breaks off Tyron “The Chosen One” Woodley live from The White House lawn! Save sports and make it free on ESPN for the people! Im in such a giving mood I’ll even arrange a tour of the oval office for Tyrone, since Obama never did,” he wrote in a Facebook post on Monday.

Covington is one of the most outspoken Trump supporters in all of professional sports, building his entire public image around his support of the President.

“The haters are saying I’m the underdog,” Covington said in 2018. “You know who else was the underdog? The ruler of our nation Donald Trump. And just like Trump I’m gonna grab these p**sies and put them in their place.”

In an iconic photograph, Covington can be seen presenting his former UFC title to President Donald Trump in the Oval Office.

“He didn’t have to spend as much time as he did with us, and he legitimately gave us 30 minutes – just (expletive), told us some funny stories, he likes chicks, he likes wrestling, he likes MMA. And he was just telling us stories and just being a regular guy. He’s down to earth. He’s just a regular guy,” Covington said following his meeting with the President.

Covington hopes to make the UFC great again, and give lockdown-weary Americans something to excite them, with a patriotic display of ultimate fighting outside of the White House.

Make-A-Wish Vanderbilt Kicker Sarah Fuller Will Take Part in Joe Biden’s Inauguration

Naturally.

Vanderbilt University student Sarah Fuller, goalie for the women’s soccer team and erstwhile emergency kicker for the men’s football team, will be taking part in the inauguration of Joe Biden.

USA Today reports that Fuller will participate in a television program titled “Celebrating America,” which will be simulcast the evening of Inauguration Day on ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, MSNBC, and PBS.

Fuller confirmed the news on Twitter Sunday afternoon.

“It’s an honor to be invited to participate in one of America’s greatest traditions,” Fuller tweeted with pictures of herself on the Vanderbilt football field. “This historic inauguration is especially meaningful for American women and girls. The glass ceilings are breaking and it is the time to #LeadLikeAWoman.”

Multiple guests will appear on the program in addition to Fuller. Tom Hanks is hosting and both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be giving speeches.

Back in November and December the mainstream media lauded Fuller for becoming the first woman to play and then score in a Power Five college football game. In her first appearance she squib kicked the ball to Missouri’s 37-yard line and subsequently hurried to the sidelines. In later appearances she made two extra points following Vanderbilt touchdowns.

Fuller became Vanderbilt’s emergency kicker after their starting and backup kickers could not play due to COVID-19 protocols.

Big League Politics previously covered the Sarah Fuller story, specifically the reaction of Jason Whitlock, a conservative-friendly sports writer who once worked for Fox Sports. Whitlock called her appearance a “Make-A-Wish” publicity stunt.
