Nurmagomedov has earned a fortune from his time with the UFC. “Eagle” has a reported net worth of $30 million, and it looks like he is making the right investments. Earlier, Nurmagomedov had announced that he will act as the global brand ambassador of MMA Global. He had revealed that the first major event will take place in Florida.
With his new venture, Nurmagomedov could be looking at taking over the telecom industry. Needless to say, Nurmagomedov’s popularity could bring in a huge number of subscribers to his mobile network that is named after his UFC monicker – Eagle Mobile.
Meanwhile, UFC President Dana White has revealed that the lightweight champion could make his return to the UFC in the near future. In a recent interview, White stated that he believes that the Eagle could return to accomplish the coveted mark of 30-0.
Khabib Nurmagomedov has maintained that it was his father’s dream to retire with an impeccable record of 30-0. However, an emotional Nurmagomedov announced his retirement from the sport after his emphatic win over Justin Gaethje at UFC 254. The retirement has not been made official by the UFC. Additionally, Nurmagomedov reigns as the lightweight champion and pound-for-pound best in the world. The Eagle is still in the USADA testing pool, which evidently indicates that we could witness the undefeated fighter once again in the UFC Octagon.
