Khabib Nurmagomedov has called out Floyd Mayweather Jr after successfully defending his UFC lightweight title against Conor McGregor. "I'll pay $2m cash tonight if he will fight for me at Bellator", 50 wrote.
You'd think Khabib Nurmagomedov would be lying low for a bit, following his dramatic fight with Conor McGregor last weekend - which ended in a suspension for both men after a brawl broke out at the end of the event.
Khabib Nurmagomedov has been offered an escape route from UFC after threatening to quit over the treatment of fellow Russian Zubaira Tukhugov. White has indicated the UFC could strip Nurmagomedov of the belt. "I said, 'Well, the commission's involved".
"I'd like to just - I told him, 'Hey, let's just stay clear of it because that has nothing to do with Bellator, it has to do with the commission and the fighter and the league.' So that's their business".
"McGregor had a fight, I don't know the other one but I know he was unbeaten", he stated. As for Coker, he views Jackson's offer as something done from more of a managerial perspective.
"I think what he means by that is like him as a manager", Coker said.
50 Cent has business ties with Bellator having signed a clothing deal with the company last month, before announcing he would award a $1m cash prize to the victor of the stable's Welterweight Grand Prix.
50 Cent, in an Instagram post, said: "I'm taking Khabib up on his offer and I'm going to see him and his team in Dagestan after I wrap directing Power #bellator". The rap star recently signed a lucrative sponsorship deal with the promotion. The agreement also includes licensing deals with the rapper's champagne and apparel company.
"Of course I am the king because he could not drop McGregor and I dropped him easily", added Nurmagomedov, who not only dominated McGregor with his superior wrestling skills, but also showed himself to be a competent striker, landing a torrent of strikes to the Irishman's head and body.
