Khabib Nurmagomedov continues to grow his footprint in the MMA world further beyond his undefeated legacy proving yet once again the sheer brilliance of Abdul Manapnurmagomedov, for shaping a mastermind in Mixed Martial Arts. Eagle FC lived beyond the hype being hope for fighters to look up for a promotion that promotes fights at the top level.
If not, the turning point in the history of MMA will be the statement from Khabib where he mentioned that big organizations like the UFC and Bellator must be careful with their fighters, if they don’t treat their fighters well, Eagle FC exists.
One among the much debated highlights was the return of UFC Hall of Famer Rashad Evans from retirement at Eagle FC 44 to secure his first victory since November 2013. The former UFC light heavyweight champion, ended a five-fight losing run in a sensational fashion to secure a unanimous decision victory over Checco (12-6) at the FLXcast Arena in Miami.
