Following the conclusion of the fights, White admitted that he was blown away by the atmosphere inside the arena - so much so that he is planning to make changes to the current schedule in order to return to the United Kingdom.

During the post-fight press conference, he said: "Tonight re-energised me and reminded me of what it's like to do fights over in the UK.

Although it remains unclear when and where another card in the UK would take place, White revealed that he already has tentative plans for who will feature on the promotion's next card.

He added: "The way I look at it, you do half the kids that won and you come back and you do a card with them.

"And then you take the other half to Abu Dhabi in October. Just off the top of my head, that's what I'm thinking right now."
