The SARS-CoV-2 global epidemic has reduced combat sports events worldwide to nearly nothing. But not nothing.

Tonight Chael Sonnen's Submission Underground 12 will stream live from Portland Oregon on UFC Fight Pass.

“It’s all a big puzzle, right?” said Sonnen to John Morgan for MMA Junkie. “And there’s so many pieces to this. It’s been so challenging – and not just for us, but everybody can share this, is the rules have changed constantly.

“Because of the way we are in Oregon, we went from 250 people can be in a room, to 50 people can be in a room, to 10 people can be in a room, to eight people can be in a room. So you’ve got your venue. You’ve got a whole line of motorhomes outside so that every single athlete is kept in a different place. We’ll have a referee. We’ll have two gentlemen competing. We will have no announcer. He’ll be in a totally different truck, feeding to a live audience.

“As fas as the broadcast team, that’s going to consist of yours truly, by myself, which I must tell you in the world of calling a show, I’ve never done two hours all by myself, and then you have the doctor. We had to cut down on everybody. We had to bring in extra cameras because we usually have a three-man crew on handhelds. Can’t do that now, so we had to set up extra cameras, and they’re all still shots, so the guy in the truck – I’ll just say, there’s a lot going on.”

“The last thing I would ever want to do is be irresponsible. That would offend me to the highest levels, especially when we’re going to all of the work and effort to make sure that we are more than responsible. But in all fairness, I’m not sure those were the two options – I mean, an absolute, hard stop or an absolute go ahead? I think that there’s a lot of responsibilities out there. We don’t necessarily have all of the information, in all fairness, but there’s very good people out there with very good opinions, and they shared them, and I think if you listen to them, and you’re able to move forward, good for you.”

Weren’t you claiming Chael was a racist bigot when he retired? Why would you be promoting his events on your website?

Eventually everyone must accept Chael as our lord and American gangster.
