Darpan News Desk IANS, 03 Sep, 2019 09:13 PM

    Actor Varun Dhawan, who has often expressed his love for sports, will soon visit UAE to watch an upcoming mixed martial arts (MMA) event, UFC 242.

     

    The event will feature a championship unification bout between undefeated UFC lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov, and the interim UFC lightweight champion, Dustin Poirier. The fight between Khabib and Poirier will be held in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.


    The event will also showcase MMA skills of top UFC athletes Edson Barboza, Paul Felder, Islam Makhachev and others.


    "Having been a huge fan of UFC for years, to watch the fights live, just a few feet away from the Octagon is going to be a mind-blowing experience that I am really looking forward to," Varun said.


    The Bollywood actor will appear in a special on-air campaign for Sony Pictures Sports Network , "UFC - As Real as It Gets", where he will be seen showcasing his adulation for UFC.


    The "Judwaa 2" actor seems to be an MMA addict. Earlier this year when Conor McGregor announced his reritement from the sport, Varun took to Twitter to praise the "legend".


    He had tweeted: "I am sad but happy in a way. This guy had his run changed the sport. He's a legend, no two ways about it. Thank you Conor"


    McGregor is the former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight and lightweight champion.
