Khabib Nurmagomedov's Eagle FC to host live events in U.S. in 2022

MIAMI – Eagle FC, the promotion founded by MMA legend Khabib Nurmagomedov, will host a series of live events in the U.S. beginning in 2022.

While the company has traditionally operated largely in Russia and the surrounding regions, Eagle FC officials are currently completing construction of a state-of-the-art production facility in Miami known as FLX Arena, the U.S. operations will be based. The promotion is expected to hold as many as 10 events at the new FLX Arena in 2022, all of which will stream live on the newly launched FLXcast app.

Further announcements will be revealed at a Dec. 15 press conference at FLX Arena, with Nurmagomedov on hand to share his vision for the future, as well.

"This is a huge moment for our promotion, and we are excited to bring Eagle FC to the U.S. for the first time," Eagle FC CEO Rizvan Magomedov said. "As the sport of MMA continues to grow around the globe, Eagle FC aims to feature the absolute best talent on the planet. Eagle FC will continue to provide a platform for the rapidly increasing number of elite athletes from Russia and the surrounding regions, but with our expansion into the U.S., we aim for Eagle FC to become a truly global brand."

Eagle FC's first U.S. event will take place in January, and the promotion will continue to host events across Eastern Europe and Northern Asia, as well.
