Rapper 50 Cent has offered UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov a massive deal to fight for his American MMA promotion, Bellator.
50 Cent posted his proposition in a Tweet, which offered a whopping two million dollars cash to Khabib on the spot if he left the UFC.
“I think it’s wrong what the UFC is doing to Khabib, they didn’t do the same thing to McGregor,” he wrote. “I’ll pay 2 million cash tonight if he will fight for me at Bellator.”
50 Cent then went on to post a screenshot of his post to Instagram, where he followed up with the caption, “I’ll deal with Dana and your contract later. The UFC is not the only game in town. Zubaira is welcome also.”
Khabib has since responded to this offer. “Just send me location,” he replied. “If you wanna see place where real men are born I invite you to Dagestan. And when I come to USA I will let you know.”
50 Cent’s offer isn’t a random number, either - Khabib reportedly earned two million dollars for his fight with McGregor at UFC 229, which is currently being withheld due to his assault on McGregor’s Jiu Jitsu coach just after his victory.
Khabib’s teammate, Zubaira Tukhugov, has been pulled from his upcoming fight with Artem Lobov for throwing hands at McGregor during the post-fight commotion.
While Khabib has threatened to quit the organization if Tukhugov is expelled, it looks like he has a slew of other opportunities awaiting him should he follow through with his promise - including a potential interest from the WWE.
