Khabib Nurmagomedov ’s meeting with Dana White was less about getting himself back into the octagon again and more about providing a pathway for others to do so, instead. Speaking during a press conference in Moscow, the UFC lightweight champion formally confirmed his purchase of Dagestani MMA promotion Gorilla Fighting Championship and announced that the organization would change its name to Eagle Fighting Championship (EFC). The meeting with White, he explained, was to get the wheels moving on brokering a deal to have his newly-acquired promotion’s events streamed live on UFC Fight Pass. “I had this offer to Dana White. I wanted to make a contract with UC Fight Pass to broadcast EFC fights there,” he told reporters. “Kind of like their contract with M-1, but a bit different.” Related Khabib Nurmagomedov aims to make MMA an Olympic sport by 2028 Khabib Nurmagomedov: 'I have no interest in fighting' Conor McGregor or Dustin Poirier Cryptic Khabib Nurmagomedov says he has 'something interesting' to discuss with Dana White Nurmagomedov doesn’t just want his shows on UFC Fight Pass, however
