Those stands are fecking HUGE. I cant find any numbers for total seats. It also seems they havent sold out with plenty tickets still available. Theres nothing worse than huge stadiums with lots of empty seats.

IF they fill this thing, it'll be mental. How do the locals go mental anyway? They might just sit there quietly with the occasional, "OOOooo".

They better have good air conditioning.

true, but indoor all the spotlights heat it up too! I'm pretty sure it doesn't make such a huge difference for the fighters.

The heat from the lamps isnt that big of a problem. It is the humidity that might be a problem in Abu Dhabi, I think we will see a few fighters gas early. I hope everyone brings their A-game in terms of conditioning.

The arena looks SICK though, I expect the UFC will hold 1-2 events there yearly once its all completed.

...In Abu Dhabi. Do you know how hot is in there?
It's usually cooler inside than outside.
a lot of the fighters have said it shouldn't be too much of a problem because on usual events the lights beaming down on the octagon gives of a lot of heat and i'd imagine they would all go out well in advance bj was there 2 weeks ago

It will be dark, surely they will still need all the lights?

Long as its night time, it'll be around 25c. Warm, but not very hot. Perfect time of year really.

The heat from the lights simply rises into the sky on outdoor rigs, as does all the body heat. Unlike indoor stadiums that need a nuclear powered air-con otherwise we all die.
