THE OCTAGON RETURNS TO ABU DHABI FOR UFC 242

The UFC has formally declared its return to Abu Dhabi, the capital of United Arab Emirates, on September 7. The statement stated that the UFC will hold lots of events in Abu Dhabi over the subsequent five years as it came into a»groundbreaking new partnership» with the city’s Department of Culture and Tourism.

UFC 242 is going to be the first time the Octagon has landed in Abu Dhabi since UFC Fight Night 39 back in April 2014, when Roy Nelson pumped out Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in the primary event. UFC 242 is going to be the next time the promotion has held a pay-per-view occasion in Abu Dhabi after UFC 112 back in April 201, the night Frankie Edgar took the UFC lightweight name from BJ Penn..
The UFC hasn’t formally announced any bouts for UFC 242, but rumors continue to swirl to a significant title fight headlining the card. Rumors out there stage to UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov trying to unify his title with interim UFC lightweight winner Dustin Poirier. That battle makes a great deal of sense considering Nurmagomedov’s Muslim heritage, and the timeframe is ideal due to the champ taking the summer off for Ramadan.
The UFC returning to Abu Dhabi is obviously a fantastic thing for the advertising as this last-minute bargain will undoubtedly bring a lot of additional money to the UFC’s coffers. It remains to be seen if the fighters will find any share of this, but the simple fact the UFC continues to hold events across the world is a good thing since it will provide local fighters from the Middle East presumably the opportunity to sign up with the UFC and fight within the Octagon. We do not have some rumors of who will be battling on the card, however you can bet that boxers using a Middle Eastern or Muslim background will be reserved for this occasion.
Besides this statement of UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi, there are rumors out there that the UFC will visit Australia in October for the middleweight title unification bout between champion Robert Whittaker and interim champ Israel Adesanya. It appeared like initially the plan was for those two to struggle in September, however, the timing has made it so that fight is likely going to take place in October. That is also a good thing for Jack Hermansson, who has been requesting to headline the UFC’s return to Copenhagen, also in October, since the deadline of this would give him the ideal opportunity to resist the winner of the bout.
With UFC 242 being announced for September, we finally have confirmation there’ll be another pay-per-view in July after UFC 239, and yet another in August, as the UFC must compensate for its cancellation of UFC 233 back in January.
Don’t forget to remain tuned to MMAOB to receive the latest news and upgrades for UFC Abu Dhabi and each of the advertising’s other events as new struggles continue to be declared almost everyday in what’s shaping up to be a rather active 2019.
