Khabib Nurmagomedov’s second U.S.-based show for his Eagle FC promotion went down Friday, March 11, 2022 in Miami, Florida.
The Eagle FC 46 card was topped by a super lightweight fight — and no, you didn’t read that wrong. Breaking from tradition, Eagle FC had pulled the trigger on a 165lb division, with Kevin Lee and Diego Sanchez, a pair of UFC veterans, throwing down.
Lee and Sanchez had both parted ways with their former promotion last year. For Lee, he was looking to snap a two-fight skid, after dropping fights to Charles Oliveira and Daniel Rodriguez. Sanchez, meanwhile, had won three of his last five, but the Ultimate Fighter 1 winner was coming off a decision loss to Jake Matthews.
In the co-main event, a heavyweight title fight found champ Rizvan Kuniev defending his title against former UFC fighter Anthony Hamilton.
