You have to give Dana props for thinking outside the box. Looks like Gaethje will be fighting Ferguson instead of Khabib. This is the fifth time Ferguson vs Khabib has gotten cancelled. Hopefully they will fight one day. It will be a great one if it ever happens. My money is on Khabib. The Ferguson vs Gaethje fight should be good.....

On Monday he was "still a day or two away" from securing a private island. No news today so maybe tomorrow? Really?? 11 days out from today and there's no location. I think this thing is going to fall through. I'm surprised ESPN is going along with it.

I heard this on Fox today. I wasnt really watching the tv close and was doing something else at the time, but I heard Dana say in an interview that his guys were building the facilities right now on the island. So it sounds like construction is already underway.

You guys misunderstood, they already have a location for UFC 249 and it’s not an island. They said they were going to get the fighters in one location then transport them to the venue, that FUTURE fights were going to be on an island for international fights since no one knows what will happen in other countries for the events in late April/May etc.. He said this today on an interview..

As for Tony vs Gaethje, I’m rooting for Gaethje buuuuut with 2 weeks notice and Tony having a 4+ month camp coming into this fight, it’s going to be hard for Justin..

Yeah, here is the video. Looks like he has the venue for this upcoming fight locked in for 2 months and hes going to have a bunch of fights there. Where is the venue, anyone know? The island will be after that and will allow him to bring in international fighters. I guess as it stands now he cant bring people in from other countries because of the travel bans? A Russian fighter was supposed to fight originally but cant.

This is NOT going to fall through, will be giggling at this post when I'm watching one of the best cards to date, next Saturday.

Not a private island but private Indian land in Northern California.

https://www.mmafighting.com/2020/4/...249-takes-place-at-tachi-palace-resort-casino

Even though CSAC doesn't have jurisdiction over Indian land, I still think the Feds will get involved and this won't happen.
The impression I got from that video and article I posted above is that he has that place for two months and then he will use the island later. It's going to take awhile to get that island ready.

In that video he says he has a venue booked for 2 months but doesnt say where it is. This article says:

"White has said the undisclosed location will host weekly events for two months. He’s also vowed to secure a private island in an unknown destination for events featuring international fighters who are unable to travel stateside."

So apparently this is the secret location. Neat idea on his part. Should be fascinating to see what the feds do.

Yes, that was my understanding as well, Island will be for the fights after UFC 249. This is all such a big cluster fuck, but I sure as hell respect Dana's work ethic, he's showing how it's done, and I watched his interview with Brett Okamoto with ESPN and it was pretty good.

I want to see Connor fight Justin or Tony.
i think Conor's a top 5 guy and i think he should fight the loser of Tony Justin. I don't think he deserves a rematch against Khabib just yet, though although i wouldn't be surprised if that's what ends up happening since Khabib will be ready to go and Tony and Just will have just fought and of course, it'll do massive numbers.

Are they going to be tested before the fight for the virus or have quarantined for 14 days prior to the fight? Or are they going to social distance during the fight? If not, why is this non-essential business allowed to transpire? I'm not saying that I don't want to see it, but I don't get why there are exceptions allowed. The rules should be the same for everyone.

I think that's why they're having it on the Native American Reservation, I think the rules are a little different there? Same thing with buying the private island.
I want to see Connor fight Justin or Tony.
As much as a fanboy I am with Justin and Tony, I just feel they're way too sloppy and take way too many hits which is a terrible matchup for them again McGregor. I have a feeling it would be like the Alvarez or even Cerrone fight, he'd make it look too easy.

They're definitely not quarantined, they're training with a slimmed down camps. Dana said he was going to have everyone tested. That should be the day of the event. Why even bother having it when any fighter could test positive and ruin it. White should also test everyone in their camp, everyone in their household if he truly wants to be responsible.
