The Ultimate Fighting Championship has released a trailer for its “Fight Island” series that has a distinct summer blockbuster movie feel.

“Legend spoke of an island where only the strong survive,” the trailer begins, while alternating between tranquil island shots featuring peaceful music and highlight clips of some of the focal points of the coming month’s UFC events.

Over the course of the next month, the Las Vegas-based promotion will hold events on July 11, 15, 18 and 25 on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi in order to help accommodate international fighters who were unable to enter the United States due to travel restrictions imposed to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

That series of events begins with UFC 251 on July 11, which is headlined by a welterweight championship clash between Kamaru Usman and Gilbert Burns. Two other title fights are slated for the pay-per-view, as Alexander Volkanovski will defend the featherweight crown in a rematch with Max Holloway, while Petr Yan and Jose Aldo will vie for the vacant bantamweight strap.
