The people in UAE will pay big bucks for western acts such as UFC and WWE.  The money is big enough that most will cater to their demands. WWE had all their women wrestlers wear fully covered outfits when they performed.  

You cant do that with competition though. You cant force a girl to wear a rash guard in a fight if she doesnt want to. That could play a huge role in grappling. 

They can keep women off the card entirely to avoid the issue.  

Yeah cause that will do well in the PR department.  “No women’s fights added on card due to Muslim Country”

Upperdog - Serious differences such as females fighting on the card, and alcohol advertising?

Are there currently any females contracted to fight in the event? If no, well.. I don't see any dudes bitching about not being on an Invicta card (excluding the queen of swords, Fallon Fox). In no circumstance do females have a fundamental right to be on every fight card because Ronda arm barred soccer mom's before being exposed for knowing Judon't know.


Are they going to be serving alcoholic beverages at the event? No, they will not. How does sponsorship work? I'm certain Modelo would be cool if their sponsorship was extended towards future events where the demographic are more inclined to purchase their products than to advertise in the UAE. Why torment patrons at the gate? Do you really want Muslims to start drinking?

Like it or not, Khabib is the champion. I can respect the terms. The first Gracie academy was in Torrance, CA. There was a challenge made in Denver, CO against all comer's coming on.

TCB

I have been to a couple of the UAE events and they had bars selling alcohol.

I've heard rumors the hangup has been over the Motel 6 ads in the octagon.  A number of the Emirs in the region find cheap motels like that to be offensive, but thus far the UFC has been holding its ground.

I was thinking the UFC was just there but it was 2010. Jesus time should slow the fuck down.

The unification lightweight bout between Habib Nurmagomedov and Dustin Porier at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi may not take place, along with the event itself.

About this in the next release of his podcast said the former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping, who said that the organization had serious differences with the host country.

“I look forward to the next fight of Habib. Nobody can win a guy, and he will become a real legend if he resigns without defeat, ”the Briton said. “Never to lose at such a high level is almost unreal. So far there are two of them - John Jones and Habib ”

“The next contender of Habib should be Dustin Porier at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi, but I heard rumors that the event might not take place due to the fact that the UFC had difficulties with holding the tournament in the UAE. This is a Muslim country, and some things that are part of the UFC are considered unacceptable. As far as I know, the UFC and the host have a serious disagreement about the presence of female fights in the card, as well as about alcohol advertising. It will be annoying if we don’t see this fight in September ”

Recall that the title bout of Habib Nurmagomedov and Dustin Porier, scheduled for September 7, has not yet been officially announced.


So they are saying fuck no to WMMA and to shitty Proper 12 commercials? This might be the closest the UG/OG and muslims have come to seeing eye-to-eye.

Yes!!!

Maybe I was wrong about Muslims after all. I'm tired of watching a lot of these women fight and I'm sick of watching Brian Ortega' modello  especial commercial.

Actually the wwe listened to the demands and left all the women wrestlers at home.

It wouldn't be a problem, the SJWs who bitch about such things will make exceptions for religious issues as long as it is muslims making the rules.

I mean, they made in exception for the no punching rule in Detroit a few (22) years ago. why not leave the girls at home? If I was a woman, I wouldn't want to travel to that country anyways...

Be nice to get a card with no WMMA and a ring that doesn't look like Dale Earnhardts jacket.

 

You want to do an event there play by their rules, or don't and put the show on elsewhere, how they didn't realise this shit before hand boggles the mind. Larry Furrytits really did run the show eh Dana.
