Khabib Nurmagomedov has doubled down on his offer to Jake Paul to join the ranks of MMA fighters in Eagle FC. The 33-year-old recently revealed that he was waiting for a response from Paul's camp.

While in conversation with the media at the Eagle FC 44 post-fight press conference, 'The Eagle' offered fans some insight into the status of Paul's future in Eagle FC.

"Yeah. We offer him. We offer him. We offer him, now we're waiting for his answer. If he want, we're here," said Nurmagomedov.

When previously offered the opportunity to sign with Eagle FC, 'The Problem Child' highlighted the one condition he had to join the promotion. The 25-year-old declared that he wanted to make his MMA debut in a fight against the former UFC lightweight kingpin himself.

Check out Paul's tweet below:

Khabib Nurmagomedov last featured in a fight against Justin Gaethe at UFC 254 back in October 2020. He managed to fight his way to a second-round submission win, using a triangle choke. The Dagestani phenom has since retired from active contention, making sporadic appearances in his teammates' corners.

On the other hand, Paul has managed to accumulate five wins as a professional boxer against a number of non-boxers. However, he has proved his striking pedigree by knocking out every opponent he has ever fought.
