White’s latest comments about ‘Fight Island’
While speaking with the media recently, in advance of the UFC’s card today in Las Vegas, Dana White was asked yet again about ‘Fight Island’. Here’s what the UFC President had to say (quotes via MMA Junkie).
“‘Fight Island’ is in a great spot. I’m not announcing where it is until – I think the fantasy of ‘Fight Island,’ I don’t want it to eclipse the reality of ‘Fight Island.’
The fans and the media have run away with this thing. We’re not saying anything about ‘Fight Island’ until we have some damn good images of ‘Fight Island.’
“I saw an ESPN plane flying in to the island (online) and stuff like that.I think people have this idea of tiki torches and me sitting in some huge throne watching the fights.
It’s fun. It’s cool. But sometimes the fantasy eclipses the reality of it. I’ll have (a target date for it) next week.”
It’s going to be really interesting to watch how this all plays out. Hopefully all the events take place without a hitch and everyone involved stays healthy and safe.
