Ant Walker, Michael Fiedel, and Patrick Auger discuss the news that UFC Fight Island is actually Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates.
Combate’s Marcelo Russio broke the news that the UFC would be hosting events in Abu Dhabi, potentially at Yas Island, where the UFC has hosted three events before.
Michael explains that we were sold the idea of “Fight Island,” but we’re now just getting an island where there are fights.
It’s nothing like Ant expected, but Patrick saw this coming from a mile away.
But there’s no reason to complain. We’re getting more fights and we’ll see the international talent competing against the best in the business.
