Arabian Gulf League side Al Wahda welcomed UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov to the Al Nahyan Stadium on Wednesday.

The Abu Dhabi side posted pictures on their social media accounts of the Russian fighter posing with fans and officials with his own Al Wahda shirt.

The 30-year-old is on vacation in the UAE just three weeks after his victory over Conor McGregor at UFC 229.

Both fighters are currently suspended pending an investigation by the Nevada State Athletic Commission following a melee which broke out after their bout on October 6.

The Nevada Commission reportedly voted to uphold temporary suspensions for both fighters until a hearing in December.

The commission voted to release half – $1million – of Nurmagomedov’s purse after initially holding all of his earnings.

The other half of the Russian’s prize money will be withheld until after the disciplinary hearing.
