The coronavirus continues to spread around the world with no signs of slowing down.
As a result, many sporting events have gone on with no fans allowed inside the stadiums.
And now UFC is following suit, as UFC Fight Night 170 on Sat. March 14 will go on, but no fans will be allowed to attend.
The event will go down in Brasilia, Brazil and feature a fight between Kevin Lee and Charles Oliveira.
For his part, Lee is okay with the move.
I’m good with fighting in an empty arena. Let’s not panic too crazy, let us fight, entertain the people stuck at home. #UFCBrasilia

Recently, the NBA cancelled its entire season after Utah Jazz player, Rudy Gobert, came down with the virus.
A day later, it was revealed that a couple of his teammates had also tested positive for the virus.
While governing bodies all over the world are scrambling to see what they can do to get in front of it, UFC is doing its part as well.
Furthermore, there have been several other MMA events from Combate Americas and KSW who have outright cancelled their events altogether.
Also, UFC on ESPN 8 is set to take place couple of weeks in Columbus, and that is also in danger of being cancelled.
That’s because the governor of Ohio has banned fans from attending live sporting events.
