The arena is being constructed next to Ferrari world in conjuction with Flash Entertainment, and will be a no ceilings stadium.

    so this will be an open air UFC event? what if it rains. i know its Abu Dhabi, but its also mother nature, what would happen?

  • inkythewinky says:

    and this will be finished in 7 days? cool

  • Johnnybigone says:

    if it rains they could just pull a China and shoot missiles at the clouds

  • hindsightufuk says:

    if its during daylight hours wont the fighters have to wear sun cream to stop getting burnt?
    should make BJ’s rear naked choke easier

  • xtreme_machine says:

    Wish I could be there…

  • hindsightufuk says:

    does look fucking cool doesnt it, i was in Abu Dhabi about 7 years ago. mistook a prayer room for a toilet, walked in with my fly half down, felt like a right cunt. beautiful place though

    The sheik paid off Mother Nature. Inclement weather is not an issue.

    ooohhhhh if i only won the lotto max yesterday

  • Rece Rock says:

    I don’t know about where you u guys live but I’m in NYC and if they needed to complete this project they would have had to started in January… So big ups to the sheiks. I guess the $$ does help get the job done also.

  • LiverPunch says:

    It’s the desert! It rains very very rarely.

  • redwire says:

    Just making sure I’m not confused. April 10th is still going to be in 6 days, right? I mean, they haven’t moved it or anything…

    ‘Cause where I’m from, if you’re not done an arena six days before the event, you’re not having the event.

    I dunno, maybe the different time zone helps :-)

  • qat says:

    the sheiks have enough “modern slaves” (mainly asians) there to do the job, so they will be finished in time..
