Dana White calls in emergency dentist after UFC chief breaks tooth on day one of Fight Island

DANA WHITE was forced to draft in an emergency dentist after he broke his tooth on day one of Fight Island.

The UFC president had made the move over to Abu Dhabi as he gears up for five events in the Middle East.

But his trip got off to a disastrous start.

He tweeted a picture from a treatment room where two dentists with PPE on appeared ready to get to work.

White captioned the post: "Off to a bad start.

"Had to call in a dentist on day 1 of Fight Island. Broke my tooth #QuarantineDentist."

The UFC return to Yas Island this weekend as middleweight champion Israel Adesanya, 31, defends his belt against Paulo Costa, 29.

To close out Fight Island five weeks later, Khabib Nurmagomedov, 31, faces Justin Gaethje, 31, in a lightweight unification.

Preparing to spend over a month in Abu Dhabi, White hailed the hospitality he is receiving, which included his own personal gym.

He said: "Last time, and this time, they built me my own gym.

"Except this time they tried to make it feel more like I'm at home because I'm going to be here for five weeks.

"This is all stuff that I have in my gym in the UFC offices.

"These people are so good at service, the service is second-to-none."
