UFC 242: Watch the fighters train in Abu Dhabi

Words by Nathan Irvine

Saturday night's alright for fighting.

Ahead of the big fight in Abu Dhabi on September 7, the UFC roster are training hard in the capital. Lightweight champion and nemesis of Conor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov and his opponent for the UFC 242 main event, Dustin Poirier, have been filmed and snapped around the UAE.

It’s part of the UFC’s Embedded series that goes behind the scenes in the lead up to the fight.

In the video below, the fighters can be seen arriving to a hero’s welcome at Abu Dhabi airport. They then workout at the state-of-the-art facilities around Abu Dhabi.

Take a look.

Tale of the tape

If you’re unfamiliar with the series, let us explain. Embedded lets you watch the “warts and all” footage of the MMA fighters as they prepare to go to war.

It gives you a rare glimpse into their personal lives and training, whilst revealing what they’re like outside of the octagon.

We can’t wait for the fight on September 7 – especially Khabib vs. Poirier. Who will win? It’s too close to call, and that’s why we’re so excited.
