Khabib Nurmagomedov Dustin Poirier UFC 242

– Episode 1 of UFC 242 Embedded looks at Dustin Poirier, Edson Barboza and Paul Felder arriving in Abu Dhabi. Meanwhile, Khabib Nurmagomedov keeps up his training. Khabib stated on the UFC media call (via MMAWeekly) that his father, and longtime trainer, will be in his corner for the first time ever.

“I think it’s going to be very big and a very good show for everybody who’s going to fight in Abu Dhabi. For me, my father can come to Abu Dhabi. He’s going to be my corner (for the) first time in UFC because he don’t have visa and he can’t come to U.S. But in Abu Dhabi, a lot of friends can come. For Russian people, you don’t need visa to come to Abu Dhabi. They already sold all tickets. It’s going to be good show for me, my family, my team. (My) father is going to come, and I’m very excited about this. I can’t wait.”
