‘Return to UFC Fight Island Will Go Down in History'

American Ace Dominick Reyes Hails Abu Dhabi’s ‘special’ Environment as He Prepares for Ufc® 253 Showdown

Reyes faces Poland’s Jan Blachowicz for light heavyweight title on opening night of five-event Return to Fight Island series 
  

Abu Dhabi, UAE - September 23, 2020: “Super cool” Abu Dhabi and UFC Fight Island™ provide the world’s best fighters with a special platform to showcase their talents to the world, according to American athlete Dominick Reyes, as he prepares for his moment in the spotlight at UFC® 253: ADESANYA vs COSTA in the UAE capital on 27 September.

Reyes, nicknamed “The Devastator’, faces Poland’s Jan Blachowicz for the light heavyweight title bout, the co-main event on Saturday night in the first Return to UFC Fight Island card. The event series, which includes UFC® 253 and UFC® 254, will be the first time that two UFC numbered events have taken place in the same city consecutively outside Las Vegas. Return to UFC Fight Island also features three UFC Fight nights and runs from September 27 to October 25 on Yas Island. 

With the stage set, and the UFC Fight Island™ safe zone ‘bubble’ in place, Reyes is ready to make his mark.

“This (Return to UFC Fight Island) is massive, especially in a place like Abu Dhabi. It’s such a special environment, It takes a special kind of person to come here and I can’t wait to show the world what I’ve been working on,” said the 30-year-old athlete.

“I mean UFC Fight Island is going to go down in history. Abu Dhabi is a beautiful place. The hospitality is amazing. This is such a cool, monumental event and I’m extremely honoured to be part of it.

He added: “My camp has been great, I trained great. I’m fast and focused and I’m ready to go out there and be the next light heavyweight champ.”

Having achieved a new benchmark in global sport safety with its pioneering ‘bubble’ concept at the inaugural UFC Fight Island™ in July, the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) is duplicating the experience with a 6 square km safe zone for Return to Fight Island, which incorporates the arena, hotels, and training facilities, as well as entertainment and dining establishments. The safe zone is only accessible to UFC fighters, coaches, delegates and UAE-based event personnel, as well as employees necessary to ensure operational continuity of Yas Island facilities.

Designed to ensure the wellbeing of all UFC Fight Island™ participants, Abu Dhabiresidents, and visitors, the robust health and safety measures signal Abu Dhabi’s readiness to revive tourism and welcome visitors back to the emirate once commercial flights to Abu Dhabi International Airport resume. These measures also underline the Government of Abu Dhabi’s collaborative COVID-19 response, widely recognised as being among the finest in the world.
