50 Cent sends message to Conor McGregor after offering Khabib $2m to fight at Bellator

UFC 229: Khabib v McGregor

Khabib Nurmagomedov has made it abundantly clear that he's prepared to quit UFC if his teammate, Zubaira Tukhugov, is thrown out of the sport.

Tukhugov sucker punched Conor McGregor following last Saturday's fight at the T-Mobile Arena and is due to be punished.

Khabib and McGregor have also been handed 10-day suspensions by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), pending further investigation.

However, it would appear the Russian lightweight champion has other options.

Not only has Khabib been contacted by WWE, but in the early hours of Saturday morning American rapper 50 Cent posted on Instagram offering him £2 million to fight at Bellator (see below).

"I think it's wrong what the UFC is doing to Khabib, they didn't do the same thing to McGregor," said 50. "I'll pay 2 million cash tonight if he will fight for me at Bellator.

"I'll deal with Dana and your contract later. The UFC is not the only game in town. Zubaira is welcome also."

Khabib replied by saying: "Just send me location," to which 50 said: "I'm dead serious Khabib. I'm in New York, I'll send a plane for you in the morning."

And now the 43-year-old has sent a message to McGregor saying that the Notorious was "lucky" Khabib didn't ignore him tapping out at UFC 229.

"I know Khabib is a man of principle," wrote 50 in the comments section.

"McGregor is lucky he didn't ignore him tapping out and keep going. Get the strap."

This is the second time 50 has trolled McGregor on social media since last weekend's fight and you get the feeling it's only going to continue.
