Dana White allowed fans to peek into what awaits fighters and UFC staff on Fight Island about 10 days before the next UFC event.
In a one-minute video that Dana posted on Twitter, we can see what the various facilities on Yas Island look like, how the arena was built to house the UFC’s Octagon, but also what testing all participants for coronavirus should look like.
This is the first look at the testing and infrastructure being built on Fight Island (Yas Island, Abu Dhabi). This experience is going to so BADASS for my fighters and my staff!!! #InAbuDhabi @VisitAbuDhabi pic.twitter.com/dog3eIhxxC— danawhite (@danawhite) June 30, 2020
The UFC is finally moving to the long-announced Fight Island after five consecutive events in Las Vegas. And in Abu Dhabi, at least in this series of events, as many as four great UFC events await us. The first of them is already on the night of July 11. The term is reserved for UFC 251, which brings us as many as three fights for the title (Kamaru Usman vs. Gilbert Burns, Alexander Volkanovski vs. Max Holloway and Petr Yan vs. Jose Aldo).
