From the Canadian Press

The UFC is holding its first ever open-air event April 10 in Abu Dhabi, the mixed martial arts organization confirmed Wednesday.
UFC 112 will take place at the Concert Arena at Ferrari World, a theme park on Yas Island, and feature two title fights: lightweight champion B.J. (The Prodigy) Penn against Frankie (The Answer) Edgar and middleweight champion Anderson (The Spider) Silva against Vitor (The Phenom) Belfort.
Also, former welterweight title-holder Matt Hughes takes on Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace Renzo Gracie.
"This is one of the biggest and most significant nights in the history of the UFC," UFC president Dana White said in a statement.
