Khabib Nurmagomedov To 50 Cents Offer Of $2 Million To Fight in Bellator: ‘Just Send Me Location.’
UFC 229 post-fight brawl dust is still lingering around with UFC already mulling over the release of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s teammate a featherweight contender Zubaira Tukhugov, while UFC lightweight champion threatens to leave the UFC if they fired his friends and teammate. If promotion keeps his words, then, of course, Russian is more stubborn with his words on ripping UFC contract.
No worries he already got a lucrative offer from Bellator MMA’s brand ambassador 50 Cent for $2-million to fight in Bellator cage. 50 cents feels Dana white is treating Khabib like a second class citizen and giving special treatment to Conor Mcgregor after UFC 229 post-fight brawl.
“I think it’s wrong what the UFC is doing to Khabib, they didn’t do the same thing to McGregor. I’ll pay 2 million cash tonight if he will fight for me at Bellator,” the rapper posted on Twitter.

50 cents said in another Instagram post, no problem ‘I’ll deal with Dana White and your contract later, so bring your teammate in Bellator as UFC isn’t the only fight Organization in town.
@khabib_nurmagomedov I’ll deal with Dana and your contract later. The UFC is not the only game in town. Zubaira is welcome also. #bellator #lecheminduroi
Khabib was quick to respond to 50 cents by saying, ‘Just send me a location’ and he will be in touch with him when he returns to the USA.
50 cents added more comments by saying Khabib’s a man of principal and disrespect was too much.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission already handed Mcgregor and Khabib temporary suspension, pending further investigation. Both UFC stars are facing fines and suspensions, the commission is still withheld Khabib’s fight purse of $2 million, but released Mcgregor’s payday.
The odds of Khabib accepting rapper’s offer is highly unlikely as Russian is currently under UFC contract and promotion may not let go of his undefeated champion.
What do you think of this offer from 50 cents? Should Khabib start exploring his options other than UFC?
