Khabib Nurmagomedov Issues Warning To UFC, Bellator

Khabib Nurmagomedov gave a warning to other MMA promotions.

Nurmagomedov is recently coming off a successful U.S. debut of his Eagle FC. He warned other major MMA promotions to keep close to their fighters.

“Big organizations like UFC, Bellator, they have to be careful with their fighters because Eagle FC is here,” Nurmagomedov said at Thursday’s Eagle FC press conference.

“Of course, we’re trying to sign good athletes, great athletes with good names. At the same time, we’re working with the young generation too. We have two goals. I just want to say be careful. If they don’t treat good fighters, Eagle FC is here.”

The former UFC lightweight champion has signed many UFC, Bellator, and famous promotion fighters. Fighters like Kevin Lee, Diego Sanchez, Rashad Evans, Ray Borg and others have already been signed.

Nurmagomedov wrote history by creating the new weight category of 165 pounds, between lightweight and welterweight.

“I understand this game (from the) inside,” Nurmagomedov said.

“I was a professional fighter last twelve years. I hear from a lot of fighters that they really want weight classes at 155, 65, 75, and 85. When I opened this Eagle FC, like, why can’t I do this? Let’s build some new history.”
