America has suffered through one year of lockdowns and Coronavirus hysteria.
Now something is changing.
And this pro-Trump sports owner made one announcement that caught America off guard.
UFC President Dana White – who endorsed Donald Trump in the 2016 and 2020 elections – announced that on April 24, UFC would run a show in Jacksonville with a full capacity 15,000 person crowd in attendance.

Last spring, when the Coronavirus pandemic first swept over America, UFC was the first sport to return to competition.
Now that the vaccine is widely available and states are lifting restrictions, the UFC is “back to normal.”
The UFC isn’t even the first sports company to have full crowds.
The Texas Rangers announced they will play to full stadiums when the Major League Baseball season opens up on April 1.
One of the key metrics of when life returns to normal is Americans going back to large gatherings, especially large indoor gatherings.
Sports leagues hosting events at full capacity was always predicted to be one of the last aspects of American life to come back online as the pandemic wound down.
Pro and college football teams are working under the assumption they will be playing at full capacity in the 2021 season.
UFC and Major League Baseball will begin the process of staging full capacity events this April.
Despite the doom and gloom predictions from the likes of Dr. Fauci, pro sports are signaling to the American people that there is light at the end of the tunnel and the pandemic is almost over.
And that might be the most welcome news the public has heard in over a year.
