But as far as ‘bubbles’ go, Al Saeed says that he hopes that this ‘new normal’ is only a very temporary solution.
“When people ask me if there will be a Fight Island 3, my honest answer is ‘I really hope not’. That’s not because I don’t enjoy the work or I don’t enjoy bringing in world-class fighters, it’s because I want future sporting or UFC events to be able to take place outside the confines of the pandemic.
“I’m trying to be optimistic and hope that we wouldn’t need another bubble. We can have more UFC events, but I want the guests to be able to watch them in person and I want our fighters to be able to go out and enjoy the emirate.“
