The UFC will return to Fight Island later this month, with the second run on Fight Island ending on October 26 with UFC 254 and UFC President Dana White has some good news for both European and North American MMA fans.
That good news is that UFC 254 will air during a European friendly time for the European fans, which also means that broadcast will air in the afternoon for North American MMA fans.
“It will be time-friendly (for Europeans),” White said after Contender Series Episode 32 (via Nolan King & Ken Hathaway of MMA Junkie). “It will happen in the afternoon here (in the U.S.).”
Although the UFC 254 times will be friendly to fans of both continents, an exact schedule hasn’t been released at this time.
UFC 254 takes place on Saturday, October 24 from Fight Island in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi with Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on ESPN+.
