The X Games were scheduled to take place July 17-19 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, but the organizers canceled due to the pandemic.
“The safety of athletes, staff and spectators is our top priority, and we will continue to closely monitor the situation for all X Games events,” said an X Games tweet on Friday.
Meanwhile, the UFC organize three combat night events at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida on May 9, 13 and 16. The fights will take place “with only essential personnel,” said the league.
“I can’t wait to fight big fights for the fans,” said UFC president Dana White.
