The aggressive spread of coronavirus has forced businesses around the world to rethink their practises in 2020. For the full contact combat sport of Ultimate Fighting Championship, this adversity has led them to find solutions once only dreamed of in fiction. Mortal Kombat 11 features in the promotional build to UFC 251 on Fight Island! Take a look:

UFC promoter Dana White first revealed the concept of Fight Island at the beginning of April, intending to work around regional health restrictions preventing personnel gatherings. The concept of a private island hosting martial arts contests naturally drew comparisons with Mortal Kombat, and the tournament on Shang Tsung's Island. This klassic plot was recently retold in the animated feature Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge.

The lines between professional combat reality and fiction already blurred when Mortal Kombat 11 welcomed former UFC Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey as the new voice and inspiration behind Sonya Blade. The UFC Hall of Famer also took inspiration from her character for a live performance at last year's WWE Elimination Chamber.

Shang Tsung and scenes from Mortal Kombat 11 literally appeared in the promotion for this weekend's UFC 251 event, which takes place at the Flash Forum on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. Kamaru Usman vs Jorge Masvidal headline in a UFC Welterweight Championship bout. The event was originally scheduled to take place in Perth, Australia.

Fan-favourite Australian digital artist BossLogic lampooned Dana White's initial announcement in April, blending the promoter with Cary Hiroyuki-Tagawa's live-action sorcerer. He more recently created an MK tinged poster for the event.
