MMA in the Rain

If you have not heard, the UFC 112 event will be the first UFC event in an open venue with no roofing. The weather for Abu Dhabi, UAE on Saturday calls for a 20% chance of rain according to What would happen if the event gets rained on? Perhaps UFC 112 will look something like the image above. When UFC President Dana White was asked of his concern on the weather Saturday, he had this to say:

“If it starts raining and the wind starts blowing … right now there’s no Plan B.”

“The high possibility of rain happening…it’s not gonna happen,” White said. “It’s not gonna rain there; we know it’s not gonna happen. It would have to be crazy for it to rain in Abu Dhabi.”

“Wind could be a factor. It’s very dusty and sandy there. I’m worried about the wind.”

The chance of rain is very unlikely, but stranger things have happened.
