UFC president Dana White plans to live on the island for the whole month of July as he rolls out multiple shows in the Middle East.

“People are very intrigued by ‘Fight Island,’ and I’m excited for it,” White said. “Right now, we’re looking at June, and we’re literally gonna knock out three or four [events] in a month. And I’m gonna stay on the island for a month. I’ll probably be there the whole month of July.”

He continued by saying: “I’ll have pictures of the (Fight Island) infrastructure next week and have more details for everybody.”

While Combate’s report mentions a potential “Fight Island” start date of June 27, White revealed earlier this week in a conversation with TMZ Sports that the inaugural event is expected to take place July 11, 2020.
