UFC’s operations are booming again. The company’s president Dana White announced on Friday what he expects to be a busy schedule for “Fight Island,” which is expected to be operational next month.
“Literally this morning, I was driving to work and talking to Ari and Ari said” how many people a day ask you where is “Fight Island”? Because I guess people blow him up by asking him where “Fight Island” is. People are very intrigued by “Fight Island,” and I’m thrilled, “said White to play-by-play commentator Jon Anik in an ESPN live broadcast (transcribed by MMA Fighting).
“Right now, we’re watching June and we’re going to literally eliminate three or four fights in a month. I’m going to stay on the island for a month. I will stay there. I will probably be there all July. ”
“Fight Island” first appeared in April as a possible UFC international combat location. According to White, it will include training facilities and hotels to accommodate competing fighters, as well as an “octagon on the beach”.
