With the unpredictable situation in Las Vegas, USA, UFC president Dana White is considering moving the events to Fighting Island completely.
At the end of UFC 251, the first event on Fight Island, President Dana White expressed his satisfaction with the organization. Despite the unexpected developments, Fight Island still fulfills the role of an alternative.
After the event, White and his former champions Michael Bisping and Matt Sera went on a trip to experience services on Yas Island, where the Competitive Island is located.
After July, UFC plans to bid farewell to Abu Dhabi and Duel Island to return to Las Vegas with the UFC Apex center. However, the complicated situation in the US may cause Dana White to reconsider this decision.
Ensuring the safety of UFC Fight Island from COVID-19
Of course, the opening of the Battle Island is intended to bring UFC activities back during the COVID-19 season, so safety will be at the forefront of the UFC.
Until now, no cases of COVID-19 infection have been reported after the events of UFC. This shows that the tournament still performs well in the required processes and does not allow any risk of spread to occur.
Although the operation plan for the fighters on the Island has not been determined, it is likely that UFC will carry out all isolation and testing tasks directly in the time before and after the boxer. This will give UFC greater control if any issues arise.
UFC president confirmed Khabib will return in October at Fight Island event
UFC President Dana White confirmed Khabib Nurmagomedov will return to the octagon cage in October at UFC Fight Island event in Abu Dhabi.
Abu Dhabi is the venue for the UFC 251 event from July 12. It witnessed Kamaru Usman defeat Jorge Masvidal to successfully defend the semi-middleweight championship belt. UFC President Dana White seemed very pleased with what happened here and confirmed that the Fight Island event will return to Abu Dhabi in October with the biggest star Khabib Nurmagomedov.
With what UFC President Dana White has announced, fans will have a chance to witness Khabib Nurmagomedov’s octagon cage re-release in Abu Dhabi in October. The lightweight champion was unable to play after successfully defending his belt at UFC 242 last September.
The Eagle must miss the battle with Tony Ferguson at UFC 249. If he wants to regain his belt from interim champion Justin Gaethje, the Russian boxer will have to defeat his opponent at the Fight Island event in this October.
Also according to the manager of Khabib Nurmagomedov, the match is expected to take place at the Fight Island event this October, most likely on October 24 this year. This promises to be a great UFC event.
