UFC “Fight Island”

What is it?

“Fight Island” is UFC president Dana White’s appointed spot to host events outside of the United States, as the coronavirus pandemic has made it difficult for athletes to travel. After several USA-based cancellations, White secured this private island to stage fights—mainly for international athletes who cannot make it to the USA. It is really an island called Yas in the United Arab Emirates city of Abu Dhabi.

Fight Island schedule

UFC 251 this past Saturday marked the grand opening of “Fight Island.” This is the second event, and it will also host fights on July 18 (Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Joseph Benavidez) and July 25 (Robert Whittaker vs. Darren Till).
