The bad news just keeps on coming for the BJJ community as Fight 2 Win 138 has just become the latest event to be cancelled over Coronavirus fears. Long before Fight 2 Win 138 was booked, ADCC Mongolia was the first event to fall victim to the effort to contain the Coronavirus. It didn’t take long for the UAEJJF to react as well, postponing all future events until further notice as we find out more about the virus. Perhaps the biggest announcement to date has been the fact that the IBJJF has also cancelled a number of events, including some of the biggest BJJ competitions in the world.
In a statement released on social media, Fight 2 Win CEO and one of the sport’s most successful promoters, Seth Daniels said the following:
Gilleys Ownership and insurance has decided to cancel F2W138 Dallas. I tried to talk them into different scenarios to where we could still do the event under the regulations set by Dallas County yesterday. They have decided to cancel our event and all other concerts and events at the venue no matter how big or small for a minimum of 7 days.
There is nothing I can do about it canceling the event costs me $30,000 with all the money that has already been spent and is non refundable. I am working on a plan with Flograppling on what we can do to keep events rolling.
I am heart broken by this, this was the best Fight Card I have ever put together, I hope the world settles down and we are able to reschedule the entire event and all matches soon.
All refunds are being processed today and should hit your credit cards within business 5 days
As for future events I will update everyone on what is happening with each one as I know more info.
