The fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier continues giving what to talk about, more when Dana White reveals new data. Of course, without an audience, this contest would make very little sense, so the president wants precisely to avoid that. “The Notorious” returns to the Octagon in a Lightweight matchup when he meets “Diamond” at UFC 257 on January 23. Although the site has yet to be announced, many believe it could be on Abu Dhabi’s ‘Fighting Island’.
Knowing this, the President of MMA’s largest company dictated, “We’re not sure yet, but that’s a goal. What I want to do is go back to Fight Island, do a Saturday-Wednesday-Saturday with the last Saturday being Conor and do like an International Fight Week. You were there. Pool parties, there are so many cool things you can do in Abu Dhabi and that is what we hope to achieve. I don’t know if we can, but that’s the hope.
“They have everything under control there. They are light years ahead of the rest of the world, they managed to mark their things. The problem is, since COVID is starting to spread right now, do you want to take 20,000 people from other countries out of the bubble to party and go out? To an event? That is the big question at this time, “also declared the American businessman, who is already rubbing his hands with this great fight.
What will happen?
For its part, White He also highlighted: «I think so. We could do it right now in the United States if we didn’t have to quarantine ourselves for two weeks. We can’t go do an event somewhere, sell it, and then have to quarantine everyone for two weeks. That we cannot do. We have fights every Saturday normally, it would be very difficult to do so, especially with our staff and officers, the list goes on and on.
Of course Dana White He’d love to see a triple-title week on Fight Island, so it could quietly be right when both MMA legends are there. For this reason, the fans are beginning to get excited and want to believe in the words of the “boss” of Ultimate Fighting Championship. Now, it only remains to know what will finally happen, although there are rumors that negotiations are beginning to make it happen in that place.
