As he stated in a recent interview with DAZN News, Coker’s main concern at the time was his employees, who were getting worried about how the situation was turning out to be.
“It seemed like the virus started to affect some of our staff. What I mean by that is, we had a meeting where I said, ‘Look, if you guys are uncomfortable, you guys can go home,’” Coker explained. “Some of our staff was wanting to get home and get back with their families, and it started affecting the team.
“We didn’t know what the President was going to say on Friday. People thought it was going to be a lockdown of domestic travel, and so people start freaking out about how am I going to get home?
“We have international fighters. It started becoming an uncomfortable situation all the way around. We shut it down at that point.”
