    I'm not sure how it can, unless Khabib is already in America?

    They’re usually there for a couple of weeks before to mitigate against jet lag I think. As of yesterday they were adamant it was going ahead:

    But still not quite sure how or whether, if it did, it would feel much like an “event”.

    We'd all definitely still watch it! And in a way it would be more of an event! Definitely a part of history.

    What if Tony goes to Dagestan?... :0

    I want Tony to do it so much. I genuinely think he has a real shot.

    Jon Jones back in the headlines. Arrested for driving under the influence, and discharging a firearm.

    What he said.

    He'll be welcomed back with open arms, "I'm a changed man" and all the usual guff.

    Don't worry, he'll learn and grow from it.

    He was told the fight would be in Abu Dhabi and so left, now there’s been some sort of switch and can’t get back into the US. Bit of a farce.

    Going to be on an island that the company has 'secured' but white won't announce it yet

    I heard it might be San Francisco, so I think Alcatraz would be a possible and marketable location? As for the fight itself, it will be a brutal affair which makes me wonder if a khabib/ferguson fight could happen this year afterwards. I wouldn't be surprised to see a Khabib/McGregor rematch instead with both retiring after. I feel for Tony,

    Why don't they do it at the Performance Institute?

    I still can't see this happening, island or not. America will be knee deep in their peak by then and I can't see the justification in taking away medics for a sporting event (even though that's pretty much all perception rather than reality).

    Hadnt really considered this, but if they fight on a private island what happens with fighters who require hospital treatment when the fight ends?

    Dana has flipped and gone Full Trump.

    It's like enter the dragon for reals. Tony is going to be like this sick Kung fu spy and kick the shit out of Dana white who is going to attack him with his claw hand and all the UFC fighters will attack Tony but he will get out some nunchucks and lay down the law! Damn I wish this was on Alcatraz it would make the best nu-skool martial arts movie.

    The fighters are independent contractors*, they can sort out their own medical care.

    *- but no unions

    Fuuuuck. Central Park in April would be EPIC. And a cool twist.

    Seriously though, Alacatraz has to be the sweetest venue for this shit ever.

    UFC pay their insurance and med bills I think these days pes.

    They're still deeply unethical to their fighters. I know the product is compelling and enjoyable but Dana et al are such lumbering thundercunts.

    This appears to be along those lines. Can't they just use Dana's hollowed out coke volcano

    I can't disagree. I've opted out of the majority of trash like this, but it just keeps dragging me back in.

    Don't tell me you won't watch 249 if it's at Alcatraz.
