While Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was able to book a highly-anticipated rematch between current lightweights contenders Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier for UFC 257 on Jan., 23, the location of the event has yet to be determined.
UFC continues its live events schedule from Fight Island in Abu Dhabi on Jan. 23 with its “Poirier vs. McGregor 2” pay-per-view event available to stream RIGHT HERE — don’t miss a single second of face-punching action!
UFC president Dana White has made it perfectly clear that he intends to host the event on “Fight Island” in Abu Dhabi, but that isn’t official at this time. White is hoping to utilize “Fight Island” to actually bring back fans for McGregor’s return to the Octagon. The UFC boss even hinted at possibly doing an “International Fight Week” for the event, complete with “concerts, pool parties, and all kinds of cool stuff.”
With COVID-19 cases on the rise around the world, White and company haven’t been able to lock down a location for UFC 257. It remains in limbo and now appears to have a chance of going down from inside UFC’s APEX in Las Vegas.
