The reigning champion of the UFC lightweight division will be getting his prestigious Dubai Star this October

Russian mixed-martial arts superstar Khabib Nurmagomedov has become the newest addition to the long list of celebrities to receive a Dubai Star.

Khabib was spotted at The Dubai Mall on Wednesday, where he received his Dubai Star, after which he signed it and took some pictures with fans.

The 30-year-old star extended his reign of unbeaten run to 28-0 in the UFC after a successful title defence against opponent Dustin Poirier in Abu Dhabi, following a nine-month suspension after his controversial bout against Conor McGregor.

The Russian has now surely cemented his legacy as one of the greatest ever to enter the octagon.
