LOS ANGELES (AP) — The UFC has postponed its next three scheduled events through April 11, finally giving up on President Dana White’s plan to keep fighting amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The UFC will not hold its show scheduled for Saturday, which was initially slated to be held in a full arena in London. The UFC also won’t hold shows scheduled for March 28 and April 11.

“It’s just impossible,” White said on ESPN, the UFC’s broadcast partner. “We can’t do it.”
