A UAE hotel has unveiled a special UFC 242 Experience Package ahead of UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov's fight against Dustin Poirier on September 7 at The Arena in Abu Dhabi.

Anantara Eastern Mangroves Abu Dhabi Hotel said its UFC 242 Experience Package is targeted at UFC enthusiasts, international guests and local residents seeking to cash in on the action.

The offer includes a luxury stay in one of Anantara Eastern Mangrove Abu Dhabi’s rooms or suites, daily breakfast buffet for two persons at Ingredients Restaurant, and two entry tickets to the UFC 242 tournament.

Bookings completed on all room categories will receive Category 5 tickets and all bookings completed on the Anantara Mangrove Pool suites will receive Category 4 tickets.

Nurmagomedov is expecting to seal his legacy against interim lightweight champion Poirier in Abu Dhabi.

The two men will contest a title unification bout at UFC 242, Abu Dhabi's third UFC event and the first since the UFC and the Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) agreed a five-year partnership earlier this year.

"The Khabib-Poirier fight is set to be a thrilling match, and you can already sense the excitement among the many UFC fans here in Abu Dhabi, the UAE and the Arabian Gulf region," said Ali Hassan Al Shaiba, acting executive director of tourism and marketing at DCT Abu Dhabi.
