Khabib Nurmagomedov is open to signing Jake Paul to Eagle Fighting Championship. The former UFC champion expressed his interest earlier today through Twitter and noted that the doors to Eagle FC is always open for Jake Paul.
"The doors of @EagleFightClub always open for you and your team." Khabib tweeted.
Last day, Jake Paul had tweeted out a picture of Conor’s body transformation and tagged Dana White as well.
“@danawhite when I make my MMA debut, I could cut 20 pounds & do it at Welterweight / 170 pounds. That’s what all UFC fighters do and many have destroyed their bodies & minds doing it. But I’m gonna do it at Middleweight (185). Health first. PS Conor walking around at 190,” Jake Paul Tweeted.
Khabib’s Eagle FC tweet was a reply to this tweet from Jake Paul. The YouTuber has been making headlines with his combat sports journey for a long time now and has an undefeated boxing record of 5-0 which saw him picking up wins against former UFC fighters Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.
Earlier, Jake Paul had expressed his interest in trying out MMA and training with Khabib’s team. Though the same was met with a cold response from Javier Mendez, the tweet from Khabib is expected to turn things around.
