“We can sign Brock Lesnar if he wants,” 29-0 Khabib Nurmagomedov all in to get former UFC heavyweight champion fight for Eagle FC

Khabib Nurmagomedov- Brock Lesnar

As an undefeated retired mixed martial artist, Khabib Nurmagomedov is all into becoming an undefeated, undisputed best promoter as well, even if it means getting Brock Lesnar on board his promotion. After his retirement fight at UFC 254 where he submitted Justin Gaethje via second-round submission in his third title defence, Khabib brought a local mixed martial arts promotion, Eagle Fighting Championship, also called Eagle FC, the very next month in November of last year.

Since then, Khabib has held multiple all Russian MMA events with Russian mixed-martial artists getting represented on Khabib’s platform. But now, “The Eagle” Khabib himself wants to elevate the magnitude of the Russian MMA promotion to another level. For that, he is going to make some major announcements about the Eagle FC events next year as well as announcing some major signings as well. This will be announced in a press conference held on December 15, 2021, in Miami, the USA.

“It’s gonna be a big conference in Miami, in LFX Arena. We’re gonna show all our fighters for the January 28 [2022] event. And we’re gonna announce some big signings,” Khabib said in an interview with Red Corner MMA. Khabib is also focusing on making changes in the way a promotion will work, the changes may be announced in the press conference itself, but rest assured the goal is to be different, not big. Khabib has hinted that the deal with Kevin Lee, who was recently released from UFC, is close as well.

After this briefing of the press conference, that’s when Khabib says, Today we can sign Brock Lesnar too if he wants,

“Right now we have a good position, we have big plans and okay, let’s go, if Brock Lesnar wants, if he says yes, we can sign him,” he continued. Khabib is very sure that amongst the promotions in their baby stages, Eagle FC is going to be the “promotion of the year” in 2022.

Khabib is also fond of the idea of having internet sensation Hasbulla Magomedov in the United States, he believes Hasbulla’s star power is at a whole new level in America and across many sports apart from MMA. According to Khabib, Hasbulla has a high chance of making millions if he gets his visa for the USA.

On asking about Hasbulla going against his counterpart from Tajikistan, Abdu Rozik, Khabib said that he doesn’t support the idea of them having a celebrity match and would rather see both as friends doing good, charity-like stuff together.

What do you think about Khabib’s offer to sign Brock Lesnar at Lesnar’s choice? Do you think Lesnar will ever come back to compete in the sport of MMA? Do you think Eagle FC can stand toe-to-toe as an MMA promotion with the likes of the UFC?
