LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — UFC President Dana White is speaking out after postponing all upcoming fights indefinitely.

His comments come after he was told to stand down by leaders at ESPN and Disney - ESPN currently holds rights to air UFC events.

White was preparing to hold UFC 249 next Saturday at a casino on tribal islands, near Fresno, Calif.

His team was also planning to build a venue on a private island to host international fights.

However, ESPN said they didn't feel it was the right time to host fights for a variety of reasons.
