“When this whole thing went down I was trying to figure out how we could do events. So I started talking to different places and Abu Dhabi was open to it,” said Dana. “But, Abu Dhabi is one of the strictest places in the world right now with the whole Covid-19 thing, so they’re going to put us over at Yas Island.
“We’re building infrastructure over there, we have a whole plan on how this thing’s going to work. … Everything will happen on the island. Nobody will leave the island. Everything, training. [The fighters] are going to have their own private training quarters where they can train themselves. We really do have an Octagon out on the sand.
“The infrastructure is going to be unbelievable. When we go out there, the people in Abu Dhabi do everything right. Everything is first class. Everything is done beyond your belief.”
