Khabib Nurmagomedov Finally Reacts To UFC 'Fight Island', Messages Dana White
Khabib Nurmagomedov has hilariously called Dana White "crazy" after the UFC president showed off 'Fight Island' on social media.
White revealed the first look at the testing and infrastructure being built on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, for 'Fight Island' where four events will be staged this month.
He posted a video of 'Fight Island', accompanied with the caption: "This is the first look at the testing and infrastructure being built on Fight Island (Yas Island, Abu Dhabi). This experience is going to so BADASS for my fighters and my staff!!! #InAbuDhabi."
Nurmagomedov immediately reacted to the stunning set up in the Middle East as he wrote: "You made this. You crazy, Dana."
The UFC boss hit him back, saying: "Time to have some fun my friend."

The lightweight king is expected to travel to 'Fight island' later this month to corner his cousin Umar Nurmagomedov, who makes his UFC debut against Nathaniel Wood on July 25.
Speaking about 'Fight Island', White said: "The fighters are not going to walk out lined up with tiki torches on the side.
"I will not be sitting in a big throne overseeing the octagon and watching the fight."
He added: "We actually have an arena. We built a little arena there that's very, very cool.
"The fighters will have their own private places to train. And, there will be an octagon on the beach too."
UFC 251 on July 11 will be the first 'Fight Island' show with three title fights on the card.
