Onslaught from the Octagon - The National

Euan Megson, The National - Months of rumour and speculation can be consigned to history: Abu Dhabi took the gloves off yesterday.

The capital’s first Ultimate Fighting Championship event, dubbed UFC112, will rumble, grumble and tumble into the emirate on April 10. To house the blood and thunder generated by the world’s foremost mixed martial artists going toe-to-toe, a specially built 12,000 all-seater venue is being constructed at Yas Island’s Ferrari World.
