He's set to stage fights on a top secret location as of April 18.

"I'll tell you this, I'm this close to getting a deal done," he told ESPN.

"So this place where this fight is going to be on April 18 I have locked up for two months, so I'm going to continue to pump fights out. I also secured an island. I've got an island. The infrastructure is being built right now. We're going to do all of our international fights on this island.

"So when we do this fight April 18, international and in the United States, we're going to start cranking. The UFC will be back up and running, internationally and here in the States."

He continued by explaining why he's keeping the location of UFC 249 a secret: "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."
