The situation in North London as Eunice Storm hits the UK
Sections of the O2 arena in London have been ripped apart by a storm sweeping the south of England - and UFC fans are worried that it's going to affect an upcoming big fight.
Intense gusts of wind have proved to be catastrophic for the event space with the Millennium Dome breaking down due to the natural disaster.
Videos shared online depict some of the dome’s fabric panels being torn and flying away during Storm Eunice.
As the O2 arena typically hosts concerts and more within its indoor arena, UFC London was slated to take place at the location on Saturday, March 19, 2022.
UFC London has been eagerly anticipated in its return to London after having previously been canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions. Now, because of the catastrophic damages to the arena, it looks highly unlikely that the show will proceed as planned, leaving fans devastated.
While it is currently uncertain the full extent of damages the O2 has suffered, further destruction is expected as the storm continues to rage on - and fans are nervous.
"This is where UFC London is happening in 4 weeks," wrote Ariel Helwani on Twitter.
