Khabib Nurmagomedov Unveils NFT Cards

In what could only be dubbed the inevitable, the NFT craze now seems to have taken a hold of the MMA space as Russian mixed martial arts promoter Khabib today officially unveiled a collection of unique digital cards.

While the gold and platinum cards will be issued in limited series, the diamond card will be unique and only one of it will be issued. Further, all unsold cards in the gold and platinum series will be burnt so as to increase supply scarcity for the NFTs.

Essentially, the digital cards are collectibles issued to commemorate the end of Khabib’s professional career as a MMA wrestler.

For the uninitiated, Khabib is a famed MMA wrestler who was most prominent in the lightweight division of the UFC where he has held the title since April 2018 establishing himself as the longest-reigning UFC Lightweight Champion with 29 wins and zero losses.

About the Cards

In total, there will be three different variants of digital cards issued by Khabib.

The Gold card series will have a maximum supply of 290 cards that will commemorate the career end of Khabib. These NFTs will have unlockable contents in them exclusively available to the respective card owner.

Similarly, the Platinum card series will have a maximum card supply of 29 cards. Platinum cardholders will have the unique opportunity to receive a personal prize from Khabib.

Finally, the Diamond card is capped at a maximum total supply of one card only. Unsurprisingly, the Diamond card owner will have the opportunity to personally meet Khabib which might be nothing short of a dream for MMA enthusiasts the world over. In addition, Diamond card owners will receive other gifts from Khabib.

More details for all the aforementioned NFTs will be revealed at a later date, the official announcement reads.

The token sale will officially begin in April 2021. Interested individuals can register their email addresses to be notified with regular updates pertaining to the sale.
