American rapper 50 Cent is in the business of making money and the next investment he has lined up is UFC's Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Khabib, who beat Conor McGregor at UFC 229 last weekend and sparked a mass brawl afterwards, has said he's prepared to quit the sport if his teammates are thrown out.

WWE have already approached the Russian about making the switch and now 50 has come in with a lucrative offer to fight for him at Bellator.

"I think it's wrong what the UFC is doing to Khabib, they didn't do the same thing to McGregor," he wrote on Instagram. "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 responded to 50's post by asking for a location before inviting him to his home town of Dagestan, Russia, to talk about the future.

"Just send me location," the 30-year-old wrote in the comments section.


"If you wanna [sic] see place there real men born I invite you to Dagestan. And when I come to USA I will let you know. Thank you for support, you are real man!"

50 told Khabib that he's deadly serious about Bellator and it seems he's telling the truth based on his reply to the Russian's invite.


In the two Instagram posts below, 50 explains that he's agreed to fly out to Russia to talk business with Khabib once he's finished directing Power, the American crime television series.

"I'm taking [Khabib] up on his offer and I'm going to see him and his team in Dagestan right after l wrap directing Power," wrote the 43-year-old.

"The new face of contact sports is [Khabib], he is the real deal. l mean he is real and I'm making the deal."

Khabib has shown he's open to swapping UFC for Bellator and you can hardly blame him when there's $2m cash on the table.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) are currently withholding Khabib's $2m purse for beating McGregor and there's a good chance he's going to be fined most of it.
