    Where did you hear it was close? I saw Dana White say just a week or so ago that Hawaii is not interested. He said the Hawaiian tourism board has to approve the event and they have no interest in the UFC coming to Hawaii. He said its not happening any time soon.

    Penn just needs to stay retired... But this could be entertaining... both are past prime but if motivated.... fireworks.

    If you need a local on the card I would rather see Cabbage to be honest.

    sherdoggers seem to make news up themselves... sometimes they just make facts up.

    if anything, ufc is now further away from making it happening.

    Tip Toes Penn would get viciously slept in the second round.

    no thanks...a rematch can't possibly live up to their first meeting.

    Can you explain this transaction? Why would a state need to pay the UFC for an event?

    Two things:

    a) Gomi fights for Rizin now, so he's definitely not coming back to the UFC, especially not with his 6 fight losing streak in tow.

    2) The UFC isn't "closer than ever" to holding an event in Hawaii. The Hawaii Tourism Board demanded a massive fee or percentage (I can't remember which, but it was beaucoup bucks) to let the UFC host an event, and the UFC told them to jump in a lake.
