Since his retirement from the UFC, former lightweight king, Khabib Nurmagomedov has been quite busy, now coaching former teammates such as Islam Makhachev, as well as promoting his own fight organization, Eagle Fighting Championship (Eagle FC). Eagle FC has recently signed several former UFC and Bellator fighters such as Junior Cigano Dos Santos, Hector Lombard, Diego Sanchez and Kevin Lee. Ahead of their next main event, Eagle FC announced a major partnership with Saitama, a community driven crypto currency token that recently developed their own decentralized wallet. Both Eagle FC, as well as Saitama, recently made a public announcement via their social media pages in regards to the new partnership. “Looking forward to a fruitful and collaborative partnership” tweeted Saitama COO Russell Armand, AKA Saitamaguru. See Eagle FC’s tweet below:
This is going to be an interesting journey for Eagle FC and Saitama as they are both full of momentum as well as very new to their industries. More than likely Eagle FC will bring more investors into Saitama, and Saitama will bring more eyes onto the Eagle FC events. Sounds like a win for both organizations. Be Sure to catch Eagle FC’s next main event taking place this Friday, March 11, 2022, live on FLX Cast, featuring Diego The Nightmare Sanchez, going up against a very tough Kevin The Motown Phenom Lee.
