The United States promotional debut for Eagle FC takes place this weekend with their event, Eagle FC 44 which is scheduled for Friday, January 28, in Miami, Florida at the FLXcast Arena. The promotion is formerly known as Gorilla Fighting Championship and was rebranded to Eagle Fighting Championship (Eagle FC) after former undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov took over in 2020.
Already turning heads for standing out with differences such as new weight classes at 165 and 175 pounds, with a total of 8 weight classes in the promotion: 135, 145, 155, 165, 175, 185, 205, and heavyweight. It was back in December of 2021 during a press conference that Eagle FC made their biggest move to date when they announced they signed former UFC lightweight and former lightweight interim title challenger, Kevin Lee.
Although Lee is not scheduled to compete until March, Eagle FC immediately established itself as a promotion that will likely be the home for several notable fighters who have competed in other promotions like the UFC and Bellator. It was also during the December press conference in which a tour was given of the FLXcast Arena, as well as details provided on their new streaming service which will allow fans a free-viewing opportunity for their events.
Just days before their United States debut, here is how you can watch the Eagle FC 44 fight card with full streaming details, and the entire fight card as it is currently scheduled.
