Khabib Nurmagomedov's Eagle FC promotion makes its US debut this week. Ali Abdelaziz (@AliAbdelaziz00) told me that before the event, there will be a YouTube pre-fight show with Khabib, Kamaru Usman, Henry Cejudo and Chael Sonnen ... which sounds ... kind of amazing lol.— Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) January 26, 2022
