The UFC makes it’s long-anticipated return to the Middle East with a title fight showcase in Abu Dhabi.
It’s official. The premier MMA organisation is coming back to the Middle East with UFC 242 on September 9. Specifically, the fisticuffs and grappling will take place in Abu Dhabi – five years since the last time it was here.
Details on the actual location where the Octagon will land are scarce, but we’ll hazard a guess and say it will be at Du Arena. You can sign up for updates on the venue and card by clicking here.
All the recent rumours suggest that UFC 242 will see the return of current lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov. The man tweeted as much. And a scrap with interim lightweight champion, Dustin Poirier could be the headline act.
