I’m pretty sure drinking is illegal and if caught, the punishment is like slicing off your tongue or something. I could be wrong, but if that’s the case…Joe Rogan can’t complain about the ‘casual drunken meathead‘ fans at UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi. UFC 112 is going down in the Middle East and it looks like The Prodigy may make a celebrity appearance. Here’s what Sherdog had to say about the potential Abu Dhabi bangemite fest.

Abu Dhabi is great for BJ Penn. Every place is great for BJ Penn. BJ Penn’s stand-up knows no home. It’s like one of those kids in Mad Max Beyond the Thunderdome.
