John Oliver Looks At How Difficult It Will Be For Sport To Return
By Balls Team Updated

Sunday night's episode of Last Week Tonight cast an eye over how difficult it will be for sports to return amid the Covid-19 crisis.

"The question isn't why sports should come back, it's how that can safely happen," said host John Oliver.

"To do it responsibly would be a mammoth undertaking; to do it irresponsibly turns out to be pretty easy."

Those being irresponsible include the UFC. The MMA promotion, which has hosted events in Florida this month, also plans to stage international events on a private island, one UFC president Dana White calls 'Fight Island'. Oliver wondered why the UFC had not been more imaginative with its naming, suggesting Brawlhamas, Puerto Ruckus, Owie Maui, Slam Miguel, UFC-Sea as options.

There was also the news that Last Week Tonight has stepped in to sponsor one of the lockdown's great successes: Jelle's Marble Racing.
