Varun Dhawan says watching UFC live in Abu Dhabi was like a vacation for him

Varun Dhawan took to his Instagram to announce to his fans that he will be heading to Abu Dhabi and he obviously couldn’t contain his excitement. He even had the chance to watch Khabib Nurmagomedov defeat Dustin Poirier and continue his streak at the championship. Varun said, “It was such a huge honor for me to attend the event. I hardly take vacations, so these 32 hours were like a small holiday for me.”

Encouraging the sport, Varun elaborated, “I have been a big fan of MMA since the last few years. While in Abu Dhabi, Dana and I spoke extensively about our love for the combat sport. Dana is a cool guy. He made sure that I got the best seats right next to Khabib’s family. It was such a thrilling night! I am sure we have many MMA hopefuls in India. The sport demands intense preparation right from childhood. Had I known of the sport in my childhood, I would have trained in it. Dana is keen to have a champion from India.”

Even though his trip last for only 32 hours, Varun Dhawan’s vacation was surely a fun one.
