The UFC has officially announced its return to Abu Dhabi, the capital of United Arab Emirates, on September 7. The announcement said that the UFC will maintain lots of occasions in Abu Dhabi over the next five years since it came into a”revolutionary new venture” with the town’s Department of Culture and Tourism.

UFC 242 will probably be the first time that the Octagon has landed in Abu Dhabi since UFC Fight Night 39 back in April 2014, when Roy Nelson pumped out Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at the primary event. UFC 242 will be the next time the promotion has held a pay-per-view event in Abu Dhabi after UFC 112 back in April 201, the nighttime Frankie Edgar took the UFC lightweight title from BJ Penn..
The UFC has not formally announced any bouts for UFC 242, but rumors continue to swirl about a significant title fight headlining the card. Rumors out there point to UFC lightweight winner Khabib Nurmagomedov attempting to unite his name with interim UFC lightweight winner Dustin Poirier. That fight produces a lot of sense considering Nurmagomedov’s Muslim background, and the timeframe is perfect because of the champ taking the summer off for Ramadan.
The UFC returning to Abu Dhabi is obviously a fantastic thing for the advertising as this five-year deal will no doubt bring a lot of additional money to the UFC’s coffers. It remains to be seen if the fighters are going to get any share of this, but the simple fact the UFC proceeds to hold events across the planet is a fantastic thing as it will provide local fighters in the Middle East presumably the opportunity to sign with the UFC and fight within the Octagon. We do not have any rumors of who else will be battling on the card, but you can bet that fighters using a Middle Eastern or Muslim heritage will be reserved for this occasion.
Besides the announcement of UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi, there are rumors out there that the UFC will head to Australia in October for the middleweight title unification bout between champion Robert Whittaker and interim champ Israel Adesanya. It seemed like originally the plan was for people two to struggle in September, however, the timing has made it so that fight is likely going to take place in October. That’s also a good thing for Jack Hermansson, who has been asking to headline the UFC’s return to Copenhagen, also in October, as the deadline of this would provide him the ideal chance to fight the winner of the bout.
Together with UFC 242 being declared for September, we finally have confirmation there’ll be an additional pay-per-view in July following UFC 239, and one more in August, since the UFC must make up to its cancellation of UFC 233 back in January.
