In true 2020 fashion, we now have a Fight Island. The fabled octogon is located on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The plan is for UFC 251 to take place on Fight Island, with three other events next month. Bruce Lee would be proud, as this has an Kumete / Enter the Dragon vibe. Fight Island will help the UFC and international fighters circumvent some restrictions caused by the conornavirus.
So far, UFC 251 will feature a welterweight title fight between Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns. That fight will be amazing and will potentially be a very competitive fight. 251 will also have a rematch between Alex Volkanovski and Max Holloway for the featherweight title and Petr Yan versus Jose Aldo for the now vacant banatamweight belt. Super stacked card, on the new Fight Island, UFC 251 should be a massive and exciting card for all fight fans.
