UFC fighters gather on Yas Island, UAE

Egyptian News Vision: - Several stars from the UFC fighters have headed to the United Arab Emirates; To participate in four mixed martial arts events, between 11 and 25 July 2020, it begins a fight between the two champions Camaro Othman and Jorge Masvidal.

The head of the Mixed Martial Arts Association, Dana White, had proposed this idea to continue hosting events for international fighters banned from traveling to the United States during the period of the Coruna virus outbreak.

It was scheduled to be located in the British capital, London on March 21, 2020; But it was canceled.

The federation had begun holding events without an audience in Jacksonville and Las Vegas, America, before White confirmed on June 9, 2020, that the "Island of Combat" is hosting the federation's activities in Abu Dhabi.

Athletes fly to a five-star entertainment resort that hosted three Etihad events in 2010 and 2014 and in September 2020, on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

Yas Island, which has an area of ​​9.6 square miles, has been hosting the Formula 1 (Abu Dhabi Grand Prix) car race since 2009.

The distance from the airport to Yas Island, which is about five miles by car, is a "safe area" that visitors cannot leave and includes checkpoints to prevent the public from entering.

The area includes a golf course, a beach, hotels, and restaurants, as well as three medical facilities employing 17 people.

Over 2,500 Etihad employees and employees working on Yas Island remain within this area, and all local staff have been quarantined for 14 days; In addition to requiring each of them to do three tests to detect the virus, the results are negative.

The matches will be at night in a circuit called "Flash Forum", accessible on foot from the hotel, and it is much smaller than the circuit that held the previous event.

At the entrance to the ring, there are "tunnels" in which sterile vapor is pumped, which kills 99% of surface bacteria.

The circuit also has air conditioners.

The temperature is expected to reach 43 degrees Celsius at the end of this week.

Three of the fighters, who were not subjected to any previous defeat, will participate in the fighting on the island.

According to their record in the federation; Welterweight champion Camaro Othman will face Jorge Masvidal, the BMF champion from the Mixed Martial Arts Federation, and Peter Yan Jose Aldo will fight for a lightweight belt.

In Badminton, the hero Alexander Vulcanowski will meet Max Holloway. 33-year-old Brazilian mixed martial arts player Aldo arrived on Yas Island since the beginning of the week and said: "It is so nice to come here, see the hotel and everything they built, it's crazy, this whole infrastructure looks very imaginative.".

In one of the major matches ahead, the martial arts player Jessica Andrade, a former women's straw-weight champion (from the lightest weights of 48 to 52 kg), again faces Rose Namagonas.

"There are some strange little things," said Namagonas, 28, of America.

"It's like a ghost town. I don't feel like an island. We were just in the hotel room."

McCann, 30, left London by air on Wednesday.

In preparation for the upcoming fly-weight fight for women against Brazilian Talia Santos on July 16.

"The circuit looks excellent, and the surrounding cage on the beach looks for show only," McCann said from her hotel room in London. "I asked if I could train in it before the landing."

She added: "If you are a fighter, do not make some change in the usual pathway affect your thinking and focus."
