Dana White has repeatedly insisted that the UFC is going to hold an event on a private island, and now the promotion’s president is saying that could happen this month.

Recently White was a guest on the Talk and Talk podcast, and while discussing a timeline for ‘Fight Island’ he said this (quote via MMA Fighting).

“The first fight on ‘Fight Island’ is probably around June 27.”

White, who has yet to disclose the location of the island, also reported the following.

“Let me tell you about ‘Fight Island.’ ‘Fight Island’ is so f**king expensive and so f**king crazy and almost impossible to pull off,” White said. “When you’re talking about planes and flying people from other [places] and the restrictions.

“You have to quarantine people and all these things that we’re going through, it’s f**king insane to be even trying to do this. But I promise you, we will do it and we will pull it off.”

The UFC’s next event is scheduled for this Saturday at the Apex Facility in Las Vegas. In the main event, featherweight champ Amanda Nunes will battle Felicia Spencer.
