Fight Island Events Edging Nearer

UFC president Dana White certainly can’t wait for Fight Island.

We are just under two weeks away for the Fight Island — or Yas Island — events to kick off in Abu Dhabi starting with the stacked UFC 251 pay-per-view.

And on Tuesday, White shared a video giving fans a look at the testing and infrastructure on the island.

“This is the first look at the testing and infrastructure being built on Fight Island (Yas Island, Abu Dhabi). This experience is going to so BADASS for my fighters and my staff!!! #InAbuDhabi @VisitAbuDhabi”

As per the video, 2004 tests were completed seemingly during a testing phase from June 15 to June 24. There will also be 17 medical personnel in three medical facilities.

When it comes to the actual venue, the numbers include 400,000 man hours, 350 tons of metal and 650,000 square feet.
