    During their fights.

    Are they worried the fighters won't be able to breathe properly? Or is there some other reason?

    I’m guessing it’s hard to breathe and masks would get messed up while punched/kicked/choked, etc.

    They should wear them. They are risking so many lives, its unreal. The UFC should be sued and shutdown for all the deaths they contributed to. Ridiculous really.

    This has to be a response to the boneheaded poster who said “you don’t see the nba or nfl making their players wear masks.”

    Both guys are supposed to be COVID-free before they fight so theoretically there won't be any risk. Or at least that's what Dana says.

    Fighters should also have a plexiglass barrier between them.

    Someone might pad their mask to protect their chin.
