It is no secret that Will Smith loves Dubai. The I Am Legend actor is often spotted in the emirate and speaks about his experiences of skydiving and golfing in the UAE in interviews.

And it seems that he is back in town. The father-of-three hasn't shared any new photos from Dubai on his own social media, but UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov has posted an image with Smith on Instagram account.

"Met Hollywood legend [Will Smith]," Nurmagomedov wrote on Instagram in English and Russian. "He said that he would love to come to Dagestan."

Nurmagomedov is from the Republic of Dagestan in Russia.

The photo was taken at Starbucks in the Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex, where Nurmagomedov has been training for the past few months.

On Sunday, NAS Sports Complex re-posted the photo, geo-tagging the post at the complex, with the caption: "Today @willsmith and @khabib_nurmagomedov met and caught up with each other over coffee."

Nurmagomedov also posted a photo with Dutch footballer Virgil van Dijk at the NAS Sports Complex last week.

In the past, Smith has been documented playing golf at the Address Montgomerie in Dubai with wife Jada Pinkett Smith. He has also ventured into the UAE desert with his family, jumped out of planes at Skydive Dubai, posed in sky-high Burj Khalifa toilets, performed at Barasti and flag-waved during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, to name only a few of his touristic adventures.

It is not clear why Smith is currently in Dubai, but he is certainly not the only star in the Emirates at the moment.

Tom Cruise is filming Mission Impossible 7 in Abu Dhabi, while Bollywood hero Shah Rukh Khan is filming Pathan, a dystopian drama set in the Middle East.

Eagle-eyed fans spotted the actor, 55, shooting action scenes in Downtown Dubai, on empty streets on top of a black 4x4 car. In one photo, taken by a fan, the actor is seen standing on top of a lorry:
