Khabib Nurmagomedov has made waves in the world of business since quitting MMA. He purchased and rebranded a combat organization (Eagle FC) in addition to promoting a number of businesses.
Khabib Nurmagomedov isn’t shying away from the tenants of his faith despite his extended stay in the US. Recently he came out against betting sites and pledged Eagle FC will never take them on as sponsors.
Oddly Nurmagomedov doesn’t mind cryptocurrency sponsorships. And he now owns a fast-food company as well. The latest business titled ‘M-eat by Khabib’ serves sandwiches made with horse meat and beef.
The selling of horses for human food is prohibited in the United States, which has complicated rules governing the consumption of horse flesh. However, horse meat is a delicacy and has little to no social stigma in many nations throughout the globe.
Khabib Nurmagomedov now has seven locations in Moscow, Russia. The business has rapidly grown a sizable social media following. In a short period of time, it has amassed more than 20,000 followers on Instagram.
Despite quitting mixed martial arts in 2020, Nurmagomedov is said to have a net worth of over $45 million.
To the surprise of many, UFC financial reporter revealed that the biggest confirmed UFC contract he knows of belonged to Nurmagomedov.
The 33-year-old retired from competition with a perfect 29 wins to 0 defeats record and was also inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.
