Dana White planning to have fans back for McGregor v Poirier 2

Earlier today, it was confirmed that Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier would be fighting on January 23rd. McGregor had previously expressed an interest in fighting in a stadium, where fans will be allowed to attend. This doesn’t seem realistic for USA, but it is realistic for Abu Dhabi.

The UFC has held the majority of their events in Abu Dhabi since the pandemic began. They’ve dubbed Yas Island to be ‘Fight Island’. Dana White believes that McGregor v Poirier 2 will take place on Fight Island, and that fans may be back in attendance for the full experience.

“The new Etihad Arena will be open and that thing was designed with us in mind. Concerts, pool parties, all kinds of cool stuff. And yes, I hope to have fans back.”

Conor McGregor has brought in bigger gates than any other fighter in UFC history. This would be a great way to kick off the year, not just for the UFC, but for the fans too.
