MiddleEasy was able to confirm that the event is being postponed.
Triller explained the situation in an emailed statement.
“We made this very hard decision out of an abundance of caution for the Fight Club athletes and fans of Triad and Jason Aldean; we determined that, given the current state of the Omnicron virus, it was in our collective interest to postpone this large arena event,” Triller wrote. “All tickets will be refunded and stay tuned for exciting news for where and who will be fighting and rocking our next event.”
There is no update for when the event will take place.
