But the event is still without an official location and venue, and the UFC president has explained why the whereabouts of the show is a top secret.

Speaking to ESPN's Brett Okamoto, the 'Baldfather' said: "There's a lot of creepy people out there, you know? And when they find out the location, they start attacking the location and making phone calls.

"So (keeping the location a secret) keeps the creeps at bay."

"I have a private island that I've secured; we're getting the infrastructure put in now, so I'm gonna start doing the international fights, too.
