Jacare Souza will fight Uriah Hall at UFC 249 next week at Tachi Palace Casino Resort in Lemoore, California. The fight is taking place amidst the coronavirus outbreak that has put the entire world to a standstill.

Jacare Souza resides in Florida and will have to travel all the way to California in order to fight at UFC 249. He admitted that he is fighting on this card to take care of his family. He said that he is motivated by the money he is set to earn on April 18.

Souza also said that he is confident that Dana White will keep the fighters safe amidst the pandemic.

In a way [fighting is] good because we’ll be able to take care of our families,” Souza told MMA Fighting. “I know the world is going crazy, but I believe Dana White will keep us all safe and put us to work. I pray that everything goes right.”

Jacare Souza ‘scared’ by coronavirus pandemic

Jacare Souza admitted that he is scared by the pandemic, but said that he has to continue fighting to take care of his family. He said that he is confident that UFC will take care of his safety.

I’m scared, that’s normal. Everyone’s scared,” he said. “We try to keep everyone protected, but I keep thinking about one thing: if I can’t pay my house’s mortgage, if I can’t pay my bills, I’m going to lose my house. If I go out to the streets, that’s when it gets complicated, that’s when they really won’t be protected. I have to take care of my family one way or the other, and I believe… I know the UFC will keep me protected.

(The UFC) will take care of everybody. I can stay home, walk across the street and my neighbor infects me with the coronavirus. This virus is highly contagious. I can stay home and catch it. But I’m going to work. I hope God blesses Dana White and the UFC so they really can make it happen and I can take care of my family with safety.” (H/T – MMA Fighting)

Souza is currently training in his garage alongside his coach Josuel Distak. He used to train at Fusion X-cel Performance gym, but it is currently shut down amidst the pandemic.
