03:54 PM ET 06.19 | UFC on FOX Sports 1 is still a go. After a published report came out that the event is in jeopardy, the UFC said the event is in fact still scheduled to take place. "There were some questions that surfaced regarding licensing requirements for mixed martial artists and boxers to have social security numbers in order to compete in the state of Massachusetts. Last week, these requirements were brought to UFC???s attention and we immediately began working to ensure that all athletes affected by this are in full compliance. We are continuing to work on this and anticipate a positive outcome. We look forward to bringing another successful event to Boston during an incredible week for sports fans in the city," the UFC said in a statement.
