Stone Cold Steve Austin had some great words to say about UFC Brasilia
The UFC 170 Fight Night event already had some problems going ahead due to the coronavirus. Fans weren’t allowed in the stadium but that didn’t stop the stars from putting on a great show.
Oliveira picked up the win in the main event, but there were some other great fights on show too.
Gilbert Burns defeated Damian Maia, in one of the big results of the show, while Renato Moicano submitted Damir Hadzovic after just 44 seconds.
There isn’t any other large sporting event that is on at the moment, and the UFC had one WWE legend on their side.
Stone Cold Steve Austin tweeted he enjoyed the UFC fights a lot, and Dana White was quick to thank the Texas Rattlesnake.

White also confirmed that all UFC events would go on as planned but there would be some changes in venues.
Fans would also be refunded tickets in case crowds are banned at UFC events, and it will be interesting to see how UFC London goes.
WWE also facing problems
WWE are also facing issues due to the coronavirus as the recent SmackDown episode was broadcast from the Performance Center.
The US and Europe have also placed travel restrictions, which could affect UFC fights in other continents.
WrestleMania, the biggest wrestling event of the year, is scheduled to take place in Tampa Bay in April.
However, that will certainly have to be looked into as large gatherings have been banned across the country.
