In a recent social media exchange with a rapper, Khabib Nurmagomedov suggested that he is open to leaving the UFC. 50 Cent made Nurmagomedov an offer on Instagram to join Bellator.
50 Cent expressed displeasure at the UFC for firing Zubaira Tukhugov for the post fight attack on Conor McGregor. The fight promotion are also holding Khabib’s purse for his role in the melee after the headliner.
The rapper has offered Nurmagomedov $2 million to defect. ‘Zubaira is welcome also’. He added that he would negotiate Khabib’s release with Dana White.
This is not the first time Curtis Jackson has taken a financial interest in Bellator. Jackson has put up $1 million of his own cash for the winner of the welterweight grand prix. 50 Cent has some kind of promotional role in Bellator. Although, the exact nature of his title is unclear.
A move to Bellator is not outside the realm of reality for Khabib. He responded “Just send me location”. He continued “@50Cent if you wanna see place there real men are born I invite you to Dagestan. And when I come to USA I will let you know”.
Could the lightweight titlist’s troubles with his promotion lure him to Bellator? Sound off in the comments section.
