50 Cent says UFC’s treatment of Khabib ‘wrong’ offers him $2M to Fight for Bellator

Luther Vandross was outed as gay after his death.

After a UFC fight got really ugly and spilled outside the ring, 50 Cent has offered the newly minted champion Khabib Nurmagomedov an opportunity to fight for the rival Bellator and earn his $2 million purse that’s being withheld by the UFC.

According to 50’s post on Instagram, the rapper took the UFC to task for withholding Nurmagomedov’s pay as a result of a brawl outside the ring after beating Conor McGregor. 50 has sweetened the pot by offering the fighter a chance to come aboard. He said the UFC was mistreating Nurmagomedov, especially since they paid McGregor his $3 million dollars from the fight.

“I’ll deal with [UFC President Dana White] and your contract later,” 50 Cent wrote. “The UFC is not the only game in town. Zubaira is welcome also.”

Nurmagomedov beat McGregor and retained his lightweight title but afterward quickly jumped out of the ring and started throwing blows with members of McGregor’s team and his cornerman Dillon Danis. Nurmagomedov was reportedly outraged after McGregor hurled racist insults at him.

McGregor also fought inside the cage with members of Nurmagomedov’s camp Zubaira Tukhugov and Esed Emiragaev.

UFC President Dana White said after the fight that Nurmagomedov’s $2 million was being held pending an investigation. He said in an interview with TMZ Sports that Nurmagomedov should be fined $250,000 for his actions. Both fighters are under a temporary 10-day suspension starting Oct. 15.

Recently reported in Forbes Bellator MMA announced a licensing deal with 50 Cent. The rapper will award the winner of the Bellator Welterweight Grand Prix tournament $1 million.

“We are thrilled to partner with such a legendary icon who has been a friend to the Bellator family for quite some time. The “Get The Strap” apparel line is just the beginning of many joint ventures we will explore together,” said Scott Coker, President of Bellator MMA.
