A few of them bear some responsibility
The UFC is aiming to circumvent coronavirus lockdown restrictions by staging an event on an Indian reservation in California later this month, according to US media reports.

TheNew York Times reported that UFC chief Dana White planned to hold UFC 249 at the Tachi Palace Resort Casino in central California on April 18, sidestepping state guidelines that have brought sports to a standstill.

The casino -- which has been closed since March 20 because of the COVID-19 pandemic -- is on land belonging to the Tachi-Yokut Tribe.
