In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the UFC is holding events in front of an empty audience in Florida, which is amenable to live sports events. Arizona is also willing to regulate MMA, and other states including Nevada are expected to follow shortly.

The UFC is also building a Fight Island, rumored to be in Fiji. Depending on generation, comparisons have been drawn with Gilligan's Island, Han's Island from the Enter the Dragon documentary, and the settings in various video games.

Now Ariel Helwani reports fights may begin on Fight Island as soon as July.

Just so I'm clear on this.....A major corporation with a questionable reputation on the verge of bankruptcy (endeavor) task the evil promoter (Dana) to gather the best fighters from all over the world to fight in a cage on a mysterious island that nobody has the location to during a global pandemic.......well sounds good to me....how do I watch?

Just because a parent company goes bankrupt doesn't mean one of it's subsidiaries will as well. You spread out your liabilities through LLC's. I would imagine UFC is one of the only things making them money right now.

Can’t wait to see when shit goes out of control when Cung Le arrives and announces, “you have offended my family and you have offended the Sanshou temple.”

It’s bullshit it’s Tony Robbin’s island and Diego Sanchez isn’t treated like the prodigal son.
