Returning to the international home of UFC, the world’s premier mixed martial arts organization, will host three events in just seven days. The event will welcome a limited number of fans at Etihad Arena. As its inaugural events, this is yet another milestone for the company made possible through its partnership with the Department of Culture and Tourism, Abu Dhabi.
Closing out UFC FIGHT ISLAND Triple Header will be UFC 257, which will see the return of Conor McGregor in a rematch against Dustin Poirier. Since their last featherweight bout in 2014, Poirier has found a new home at lightweight, defeating notable names, such as Justin Gaethje and Max Holloway and claiming the interim lightweight title. On the other hand, McGregor has consistently taken part in thrilling performances, including his most recent fight against Cowboy Cerrone, defeating the UFC veteran in just 40 seconds.
