- As most sports have ground to a halt, the UFC has continued to look for ways to keep their fans entertained.
- President Dana White claims he’s “a day or two away” from securing a private island from which he’ll host MMA fights.
- Channelling the crime lord Han from Enter the Dragon, Dana White is going to ridiculous lengths to keep the wheels turning at the UFC.
In a move reminiscent of the dastardly crime lord Han in the Bruce Lee classic Enter the Dragon, Dana White has hilariously announced that he’s commandeering an island to stage UFC fights.

I’m also a day or two. away from securing a private island. I have a private island that I’ve secured. We’re getting the infrastructure put in now, so I’m gonna start doing the international fights too with international fighters.

We have all our own planes and everything.

When Rogan was asked about who would be commentating at the event, his reply was, “it’s not gonna be me . ”
Dana White disagrees, claiming Rogan didn’t mean what he said. Reporters got it all wrong:
