lcarus - It will be in scorching heat/humidity unless I'm mistaken


Nope it will be just about perfect temperature in the evening that time of year. Last year it rained through half April and was about max 26-30 in the day. that was freak weather though. this year will be back to norm I'd say...Expect around 16 - 22 degrees C

I reckon it's much hotter fighting inside under the lights actually.

I feel like a fucking Meteorologist....

dude... have you never traveled outside the US? Did you not take chemistry in HS?

C x 9/5 + 32 = F

and going F to C is going backwards or the inverse.

 ohh it's a theme park! I get it! :P
Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, you only need to say the name and the possibilities start racing through your head. This is a world first from a brand that thrives on being first. Opening in 2010, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is set to be the worlds largest indoor theme park, sitting under a roof designed in the style of a classic double-curve body shell of a Ferrari GT car. There is energy, excitement and passion for the entire family at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi. With over 20 rides and attractions, including the worlds fastest rollercoaster, Ferrari World is more than a theme park it is where Ferraris legendary story is unveiled. Ferrari World Abu Dhabi will captivate the whole family with its array of engaging activities. Couple this with its extremely innovative architecture, a dash of Italian spirit, and you will surely live an experience like nothing else you have before.

and an open air event seems like a cool idea

not to mention anderson vs belfort, bj vs edgar and hughes vs renzo all on the same card!

I'm guessing this is just a picture of "what" it is going to look like as it does not open till sometime in 2010. The picture itself doesn't look real so wonder if the finished product will look exactly like this? If does, probably one of the coolest buildings I have ever seen. The video looks like West Edmonton Mall on steroids. A very cool concept.

dude, they are no where near done building that thing. i don't why they are pretending the fight will be there. i'm not even sure the construction has started.



A quick check of Google maps proves you have no clue what you're talking about. The entire red structure is there and they've completed all foundational/structural work.

 For all you people that are saying the structure is not done: how do you know?

I passed by it a hundred times for the past 3 or 4 days. There is an outdoor arena in there. They just have to build a structure to accommodate the way the UFC shows are built. That's going to be done by event time.

i think the only place with humidity, on the Arabian peninsula, is in a tiny tropical forested area near the coast of Oman...(i think they filmed that 'Paradise' movie there)

Am pretty sure it's very dry & arid everywhere else.
