    A few months back we heard of the "fight island" Dana White was building in a secret location. The island was said to be under construction for weeks and seemingly was completely ready to start hosting UFC fights. But then just a bit before the fight (UFC 249, I believe), word got out that hosting fights on the island wouldn't happen anytime soon, and maybe not at all. The word about the island became almost non-existent after UFC 249 was hosted at a different venue.

    Fast forward a couple months and here we are. Dana White pulled it off after all. The very first fights on fight island are set to start today! The island is located in Abu Dhabi, known as Yas Island. Not only is this super cool to actually see happen, but it's got an excellent card. The Masvidal vs. Usman fight is going to be a banger. Plus, if Masvidal wins there's a ton of talk that his next bout will be against McGregor. That will be an insane fight. I'm also excited to what what Jose Aldo brings this time around.

    The fight kicks off tonight at 10pm EST.

    Full UFC 251 Fight Card:

    Kamaru Usman vs. Jorge Masvidal

    Alexander Volkanovski vs. Max Holloway

    Petr Yan vs. Jose Aldo

    Jessica Adrade vs. Rose Namajunas

    Amanda Ribas vs. Paige VanZant

    The fights were really good. I don't want to spoil anything so I'll just leave it at that. It was also interested because the actually had some people in the stands this time. Not too many, but people in the stands.
