There’s no denying Khabib has been a hot topic of discussion ever since he won the controversial bout versus Conor McGregor at UFC 229 last year. He marked his return to the Octagon last weekend after serving a nine-month suspension defeating Dustin Poirier via submission in round three, cementing his legacy as one of the greatest of all-time in UFC history.

The 30-year-old Dagestani headed to Dubai Mall yesterday to hang out with fans and meet Mr Ahmad Al Falasi, Executive Director of Group Operations at Emaar.
