Retired football superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a huge MMA fan.

Right now he’s ringside at UFC 294 at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, supporting his friend Khamzat Chimaev who fights in the co-main event of the evening.

“What’s up guys I’m Zlatan here enjoying the UFC, supporting Khamzat,”  Zlatan said on Instagram.

The football star also took time to predict the highly anticipated rematch between reigning lightweight champion Islam Makhachev and featherweight champion Alexander “The Great” Volkanovski.

“Main event; I think I have Islam there so, I’m just enjoying. Let’s hope for a great show and I hope you all enjoy it”, Zlatan said on Instagram.
