Russia’s first UFC Champion has now turned his attention to multiple business ventures.
According to Kabib Nurmagomedov he’s made sure to capitalize on the UFC”s parent company, Endeavour, becoming a publicly traded company.
When he was asked if he had acquired shares in the company, Nurmagomedov said: “Who gave you this information”
“Yes, I am already there.
“[The] UFC has already gone to IPO and I have some part of the shares.”
Kabib was asked if he might be able to lobby for the promotion if his status as a shareholder permits him to lobby for “something” in the promotion.
“We discussed this topic with Dana White in a lot of our meetings.
“I see great prospects for [the] UFC.
“They went to IPO and they have very great prospects.”
When asked if the UFC brass gave him shares, Nurmagomedov replied: “I don’t like gifts.
“We can say that I bought UFC stock. This will be true.”
Nurmagomedov’s revealing of his acquisition of UFC shares comes a few days after he was reported to have signed a contract to play professional football.
Last week, RT claimed the Dagestani destroyer had inked a deal with Russian third division side FC Legion Dynamo.
