Dana White : UFC aiming for ‘Fight Island’ debut on June 27


Dana White says we’re less than a month away from seeing what “Fight Island” is all about.

The UFC president appeared on British boxing promoter Eddie Hearn’s “Talk the Talk” podcast and revealed his plans to launch live events on the still-secret island location are mere weeks from coming to fruition.
“The first fight on ‘Fight Island’ is probably going to be around June 27 – not July,” White said.

A fight card for that date is already taking shape with lightweight contenders Dustin Poirier and Dan Hooker currently scheduled to face off in the main event. The June 27 card also features a women’s bantamweight bout between Aspen Ladd and Sara McMann.
