Undefeated UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov has attributed his phenomenal wrestling pedigree for his laurels in the sport of MMA

Khabib Nurmagomedov, as humble as he was outside the octagon, inside the octagon was remorseless and unsparing. He built up a resume through some dominant work- so much that it’s almost impossible to think of anyone that can replicate that.

His illustrious career can be imputed to his top of the range wrestling skills and elite grappling credentials. Khabib’s father late great Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov shaped him into the fighter that he became, based on his foundation roots in wrestling.

His last three fights against top names in the division namely Conor Mcgregor, Dustin Poirier and Justin Gathje came via submission- all set up by tiring out his opponents, and dragging them to deep waters through wrestling. He posted a picture of himself training, and paying tribute to his beloved combat sports form.

He said, ‘I always found only one way 👊⚔️’

Wrestling has stood the test of MMA over the years, and is recommended as the perfect base to have to succeed in the sport.

Eagle FC is slowly setting its foot on US soil and building up its brand by emulating top players like UFC and Bellator. Although Khabib has stated on various occasions that he does not consider Eagle FC as a direct competition to the UFC, he still has big plans as a promoter.

He has been working relentlessly trying to make new signings, making the show bigger, and having the best interest of the fighter’s welfare in mind.

Khabib has stated that the next show will be in May by putting out a tweet saying,

It was another great show in Miami with @EagleFightClub @EagleOnFLX
