The Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex is a favourite among visiting sport stars…

HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai, was snapped with UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov at Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex – a favourite among sporting celebrities.

Following a workout session at the sports complex, the mixed martial arts master took to Instagram to share a photograph of himself and Sheikh Hamdan. Khabib captioned the image: “It was good to see you after training my Friend ?”.

Khabib is not the only sporting legend who likes to work up a sweat at the Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex in Dubai. This state-of-the-art sports centre draws the world’s sporting greats for workouts when they’re in town.
