MMA legend Khabib Nurmagomedov is the founder and promoter of Eagle FC, a Miami-based MMA company.
A year after buying Gorilla Fighting Championships, which he renamed Eagle FC, Khabib and his team moved the promotion from Russia to the United States, settling in South Florida, a hot spot for the MMA training.
Before he and his team decided to move the promotion to South Florida, specifically Miami, in January 2022, Eagle FC hosted events in Russia, showcasing some of the top emerging talent.
A retired professional MMA fighter undefeated at 29-0, Khabib is a Russian-born talent who was the longest-serving UFC lightweight champion.
Eagle FC made its official United States debut on American soil on January 28, 2022 at the FLXcast Arena in Miami, a state-of-the-art venue and the new home of Eagle FC in the United States. This first American show in Miami was very well received. A hit, it drew 500,000 viewers and charted at No. 44 worldwide.
Eagle FC has received tremendous support from the City of Miami, particularly Mayor Francis Suarez, Commissioner Ken Russel, and community leader and former Miami Heat player Alonso Mourning.
Attorney Ed Patricoff negotiates Eagle FC’s deals with Miami and advises them on the potential for expansion and growth of Eagle FC’s operations in Miami. He says “Our goal is to make Miami not just the capital of capital, but the capital of content.”
Miami has always been an attractive destination for the international community, which appeals to the MMA community. Recently, it has also become one of the hottest markets in the country in terms of technology, real estate and hospitality.
