It is no secret that the retirement of Khabib ‘The Eagle’ Nurmagomedov hit the whole MMA community hard, it was a shock to most, due to Khabib constantly stating that he desires to retire once he reaches 30-0.
The main reason Nurmagomedov did not shoot for 30-0 was the loss of his father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, Khabib stated he could not go through another camp without his father.
However, this does not mean that Nurmagomedov is sitting around doing nothing, ‘The Eagle’ had expressed his interest in going into a business of some sort throughout his career now that he is retired he has time to focus on his business interests.
Shortly after his retirement, Nurmagomedov decided to cash in on his name and announced his new mobile operator, Eagle Mobile.
The Dagestani stated that sim cards would be made available in the Moscow region for the time being, but has plans to spread far beyond just Moscow.
Khabib more recently purchased Gorilla Fighting Championship (GFC), an MMA promotion based in Russia. ‘The Eagle’ intends to rename the promotion to Eagle Fighting Championship (EFC) and hopefully form a partnership with Dana White and the UFC and get Eagle Fighting Championship on fightpass.
Nurmagomedov also announced he would be opening a chain of gyms across the world named “Khabib Gym” with the first opening in Abu Dhabi next summer and many more opening across the world in due time.
It is obvious that Khabib is a very smart and innovative gentleman who will continue to be a great role model for the next generation, Khabib will continue to create and inspire.
