UFC Fight Island RUMOURED to have been owned by Jeffrey Epstein

"There's just bad karma around that entire island." 

UFC Fight Island seems to be one of few places on earth to host MMA events, though the Island may have an incredibly dark past as it has been rumoured to have been owned by Jeffrey Epstein. 

The sports world is still reeling from the effects of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Though as many sports leagues are forced to postpone all events, MMA may have found a way. UFC president Dana White has made headlines as of late, as he claims to have acquired a private island to host fights. The UFC have even filed over 20 registered trademarks for the terms “Fight Island” and “UFC Fight Island”.

Details regarding the island, however, have been scarce to say the least, and there may be a reason for that. According to former UFC fighter Brendan Schaub, the island the UFC have acquired was previously owned by convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.


“Have you heard this rumour I’ve heard from legit sources: It’s Jeffrey Epstein’s old island,” Schaub told MMA journalist Luke Thomas on his podcast Below the Belt. “That’s what I’ve heard, that’s the rumour going around, for real.”

“Yeah there’s just bad karma around that entire island,” Schaub added.

Epstein was a successful businessman with many connections within politics, entertainment and finance. He was convicted on several accounts of sexual assault and trafficking of underage girls. While in prison Epstein supposedly committed suicide, though that cause of death has been heavily disputed by many. Up until his mysterious death, Epstein owned the private island Little Saint James, which has later been dubbed “paedophile island”.

It’s important to note that the rumours of UFC Fight Island and Little Saint James being the same island are not confirmed. Schaub did not disclose his source and as of now it’s all hearsay. Though connections to Epstein are the last thing the UFC would need.
