The LLC that owns all of the trademarks for the UFC filed a trademark for the name “UFSEA” in a move that seems to imply it’s a title that will be used in some upcoming event, according to trademark attorney Josh Gerben. The filing for this trademark was made on May 19.

As Gerben notes in his video explaining the details of what comes out to be four total trademark filings, this decision comes some months after Dana White announced the creation of Fight Island — a private island that will supposedly hold UFC matches in the future while the United States is under quarantine-related restrictions.

But this name isn’t exactly an original idea, and it’s not just because it was an easy pun to make. The name UFSEA was brought up on Sunday’s episode of “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver.” In an episode about how sports are trying to return while the coronavirus pandemic rages on, Oliver talks about UFC and pokes fun at the concept of “Fight Island,” including the name itself.

“Now, is [Fight Island] a intelligent identify? No. Is it the right identify? Sure, as a result of it is the primary thought an fool would have in the event that they needed to call a non-public island the place fights occur,” Oliver stated. “Now he might have known as it Brawlhamas or Puerto Ruckus or Owie Maui or Slam Miguel, however he did not, he did not try this. And he did not even go together with the apparent for an island the place you stage UFC fights, which is solely UF-SEA.

“Have a look at me, Dana: why did not you simply name it UF-SEA? It is excellent!”

Nicely, it looks like White took Oliver up on his supply and went with that identify. It is not clear at this second whether or not these filings will get authorised, however what is evident is that if the trademark was impressed by Oliver, White completely paid no consideration to another portion the present, because it looks like he is nonetheless pushing to make this wild dream a actuality.
