Undisputed UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is in a bit of trouble following his fourth-round submission win over Conor McGregor. Nurmagomedov attacked McGregor’s team following his win, while some of Nurmagomedov’s teammates attacked the Irishman in the Octagon. It was a messy scene indeed, and now many expect the NSAC to suspend Nurmagomedov and they may keep a significant portion of his $2 million purse.
While that would be a big blow to Nurmagomedov, the biggest blow is that UFC President Dana White has implied he might cut any UFC fighters involved in the Nurmagomedov-McGregor brawl. Unfortunately, Nurmagomedov’s teammate Zubaira Tukhugov was one of those fighters. If White does fire Tukhugov, whose upcoming fight with Artem Lobov has already been cancelled, then Nurmagomedov said he will never fight in the UFC again.
Well if that is the case, rapper 50 Cent, who has become an investor in Bellator MMA, has an offer for Khabib Nurmagomedov.
I️ 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. pic.twitter.com/K7QYxR4IHI

“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,” 50 Cent wrote on Twitter.
Not only did he post to Twitter, but 50 Cent also posted on Instagram, which Nurmagomedov noticed.
“[Khabib Nurmagomedov] I’ll deal with Dana and your contract later. The UFC is not the only game in town. Zubaira is welcome also,” 50 Cent added on Instagram.
Nurmagomedov seemed interested in 50 Cent’s offer and gave his now trademark in response.
“Just send me location,” Nurmagomedov responded in the comments.
“If you wanna see place there real men born I invite you to Dagestan. And when I come to USA I will let you know. Thank you for support, you are real man!,” he added.
That attracted more attention from 50 cent who responded to Nurmagomedov’s comment.
“I know Khabib is a man of principle, and the disrespect was overwhelming. McGregor is lucky he didn’t ignore him tapping out and keep going. Get the strap,” 50 cent wrote.
What do you make of this interaction between Khabib Nurmagomedov and rapper 50 Cent.
