MMA Fans Disappointed Over UFC’s Decision to Stage Major Events in Abu Dhabi
Not a few American MMA fans are disappointed over UFC’s decision to stage the three major Fight Night battles in Abu Dhabi. Even more disappointing is that only a limited number of fans will be allowed to attend the 3-card Fight Island Events.
Nonetheless, the Abu Dhabi Fight Island Event this January, marks the first time that live audience will be able to witness a UFC promotions card since March 2020. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the past months saw UFC 2020 cards taking place in Las Vegas behind closed doors and with no fans in attendance.
However, as the Department of Culture and Tourism in Abu Dhabi wants to maintain the region’s global reputation as safe world-class destination, the agreement to hold UFC’s major triple headliner Fight Nights in Fight Island, comes with a condition that only a limited number of audience will be allowed inside the sports arena, to ensure that safe distancing measures will be observed.
