UFC President Dana White has warned Khabib Nurmagomedov about the difficulties of being a fight promoter.

As the UFC continues to thrive, there are plenty of promotions that are also trying to find their way into the crowded mixed martial arts space. Eagle FC, the promotion founded by former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, is one example.

Eagle FC plans to host seven or eight events in the US alone in 2022 and while that may sound ambitious, Khabib seems pretty confident about the future of his new brand.

When asked about the project, Dana White had disturbing words for the former 155-pound king.

“I haven’t told Khabib about his promotion at all,” White said. “He’s going to find out what it’s like to be on the other side. It’s not as fun as it sounds. He will learn. If he doesn’t know, he will.

“If he calls me and wants advice, I would absolutely give him advice,” White said. “But I think he’s going to learn the hard way.”

The fact that fighters like Rashad Evans and Kevin Lee have already signed for the EFC is a good indication of their ambition for the future. Of course, there will always be some hurdles to jump through along the way, which is why White wants to make Khabib understand that it’s going to take a lot of time and effort if he is to make this a worldwide success. .
