How big of a factor will the location (Abu Dhabi) of the Khabib/Poirer fight be?

    It’s at sea level. Why would that location effect cardio?

    Are they fighting outdoors? If anything affects cardio I actually favor Poirier more because he definitely carries his power even late in the fight.

    I understand that Wizzlebiz but I really do t think anything bad will happen. Russians are quite hard core but they're not lawless twats like in Brazil.

    Also Abu Dhabi and Dubai are very developed and they will have great security and you'd have to be REALLY stupid to start some kind of a riot in the middle east.

    If Poirier was fighting some Brazilian champion in Buenos Aires I'd be FAR more concerned given the lawless animalistic xenophobia that exists there, and their Neanderthal prevalence for random petty stupid street violence.

    did they pick a venue yet? ie- it might be an outdoor arena, so no temperature/humidity control.

    It is obvious that you have zero idea about Abu Dhabi.
    This place is safer than your living room

    I REALLY doubt it.
    I've been to Dubai in October and it's phenomenally hot. 96F by around 11am.

    Cannot see UFC ever holding an outdoor event for climate reasons. Abu Dhabi in early September will be super hot in the day and still hot at night.
