Where is Dana White’s private island, and where will UFC 249 be held this weekend? – The SunMay 4, 2020
UFC kingpin Dana White is doing everything possible to give fans their MMA fix.
Despite Khabib Nurmagomedov dropping out of UFC 249, the event is still on after Justin Gaethje was drafted in to face Tony Ferguson this weekend.
But with the coronavirus pandemic locking down much of the world, White is getting creative as he looks to keep the Ultimate Fighting Championship going.
Where is Dana White's private island?
WHITE is reportedly looking to hire his own private island in a bid to keep UFC afloat, and says it could be operational by June.
And according to TMZ, the 50-year-old is closing in on a remarkable deal to host future dust-ups on a private island.
It would means flying the fighters out on private jets after setting up an Octagon on the secluded location.
He said last month: "I’m also a day or two away from securing a private island.
"I have a private island that I’ve secured. We’re getting the infrastructure put in now, so I’m going to start doing the international fights, too, with the international fighters.
“I’m not going to be able to get the international fighters, all of them into the US, so I have a private island.
"I’m going to start flying them all into the private island and start doing international fights from there.
"We have all our own planes and everything we’re going to fly into the island with the fighters.”
Despite White revealing all this on April 6, there is still no indication of exactly where this private island could be.
Has UFC 249 location been confirmed?
UFC 249 this weekend will take place from the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.
There will be no fans in attendance and strict measures are in place.
UFC will also have Fight Night cards on May 13 and May 16 at the same arena in Florida.
