FUTURE UFC Hall of Famer Khabib Nurmagomedov claims he offered Jake Paul a contract to play for Eagle FC.
Nurmagomedov public provided Problem Child with a fighting chance in her growing promotion earlier this month but claims to have taken it a step further by sending him a contract.
Speaking after Eagle 44 in Miami, he said: “We offered him, we offered him (a contract).
“Now we are waiting for his reply. If he wants to, we’re here.”
Paul, 25, agreed to Nurmagomedov’s first offer – made on Twitter – but on the condition that the Russian retires to face him.
In response to The Eagle, Paul tweeted: “Got the deal. [But] only if I fight you first. ”
Paul continues to tease a move into MMA world after his viral KO of Woodley, shared a video of him practicing his foot kicks.

The former Disney star seemed so amazed when he stepped into the cage that he even thought about the weight class he would compete in.
In a tweet directed at the UFC president White Dana, “When I made my MMA debut, I was able to lose 20 pounds and do it at 170 pounds,” says Paul.
“It’s what all UFC fighters do and many people have ruined their bodies and minds doing it.
“But I would do it in middleweight (185). Health is above all. PS Conor [McGregor is] walk around at 190Ibs. ”
Paul made White the focus of his animosity with the UFC paying boxer, so much so he release a ‘diss song’ at the MMA mogul earlier this week.
In a leaked excerpt of the song, Paul rapped: “Dana, f*** Dana White.
“First, [Jorge] Masvidal, you are not rich. 50 matches for 5mill is not a bad thing. I am a paid fighter, where is the right to health care.
“They risked their lives and they couldn’t. Big bags, that’s what I come for. I love talking about money.
“All that little Stockton *** was great, but that lisp made me think, ‘Do you speak another language?’
“All greatness speaks for itself, boy. All you fight for is a pile of toys on the shelf. Dana, you won’t let them off the leash.
“Let them come and make some infractions. Why are you trying to attack the Nelk boys.”
