The full cards for UFC’s Fight Island events

UFC will run four events at Fight Island in Abu Dhabi. We run down the four cards and will update them with any changes.

UFC wrapped up its June schedule at the Apex facility in Las Vegas, and it’s time to turn our eyes to Fight Island. The organization and fighters are headed to Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, where we’ll get four fights, including the UFC 251 PPV.

Four championships are currently on the line over the course of two weeks, with three of them coming in the PPV. We could see the welterweight, featherweight, bantamweight, and flyweight titles all change hands before things are said and done. UFC 251 also features a huge women’s strawweight bout between the top two contenders.

Below are the full cards as announced by UFC. It is always worth noting all fights are subject to change. It’s hard to recall the last time a UFC card went off without a single change, so we’ll update this as potential changes happen. It’s going to be interesting to see how this all pans out with the event overseas during a pandemic, but we’ll update as needed.

All times listed are ET.
