Saygid Izagakhmaev has signed with ONE Championship. And the signing was made known nothing more and nothing less than Khabib Nurmagomedov, who thanked the president of the promotion, Chatri Sityodtong, for opening the doors to his teammate in Eagles MMA and AKA.
«I want to share a news with you: my brother, @saygid_izagakhmaev, has signed a contract with @onechampionship and his next fight will be in December.
Thank you very much @yodchatri. It would be impossible without you. See you later my friend. It was good meeting you.
Izagakhmaev, 27, holds a professional record of 19-2, finishing twelve games via submission.
The Dagestani will make his debut with ONE in December having won six of his last seven contests. His most recent loss was one by submission to the reigning welterweight of the UFC, Carlston Harris. That match was played in an event of UA Warriors at the beginning of the year.
