We have launched a new #podcast called Dubai Wave, produced by a team of talented #AUDubai students and me. 🎧🎤👍 For Ep 1, we are thrilled to present @tam_khan , #Dubai's preeminent #MMA fighter and ambassador of the sport. Khan was born in London but moved to the nearby county of Essex as a youngster. His mother, concerned he would be bullied, encouraged him to get involved in #karate and amateur #boxing for #selfdefense. He was also a promising #soccer player and amateur #bodybuilder. A seminal moment came when he read a magazine article about the #Gracie brothers and found himself transfixed. He and some friends ordered videos of the brothers in action and spent hours attempting to perform similar moves. Khan has gone on to become Dubai's top MMA fighter and a legendary ambassador for the #sport.

The concept with #DubaiWave is to look at big picture #dubai🇦🇪 . Each episode will focus on a unique topic, such as Dubai #Fitness; Dubai Social Media; Dubai Food Scene; Dubai Music, etc., with the goal to illuminate a 360-degree viewpoint of all the exciting things happening here, the gem of the #MiddleEast. The impressive guest list to date includes the founders of two of Dubai’s most popular food blogs (Dubai Foodie Scene); successful entrepreneur, Anas Bukhash (Dubai Entrepreneurship); the editor of What’s On Dubai, Laura Coughlin (Dubai Magazines); and the host of Virgin Radio, Brent Black (Dubai Radio). Many exciting episodes to come!! Hosted by:
