Khabib Nurmagomedov is the talk of the fighting world right now.

The Dagestan-born champion made worldwide headlines at UFC 229 for two reasons.

Firstly, he beat fan favourite Conor McGregor by fourth-round submission after a truly dominant display at the T-Mobile Arena.

Secondly, he almost sparked a stadium riot by leaping over the Octagon to attack McGregor's teammate Dillon Danis.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission look set to punish the Russian quite seriously and he may find it difficult to fight in Las Vegas again.

The UFC haven't acted as strongly, but Dana White is set to severely punish Khabib's entourage Zubaira Tukhugov after he attacked McGregor in the Octagon.

As such, Khabib has been considering offers from elsewhere.

50 Cent made him a $2m offer to make the switch over to Bellator, but Khabib's manager Ali Abdelaziz demanded a minimum of $50m.

"For $2m, [that won't even] open a Coca-Cola bottle for Khabib. Khabib make a lot of money. We talk about $50m and up, we can talk. But $2m? This is garbage," Abdelaziz said, speaking to TMZ.

"50 Cent's offer was simply disrespectful."

As such, 50 Cent took to Instagram to have a savage rant at Khabib's team. He's since deleted the post, but thankfully it has been screen shotted below.


The G-Unit rapper wrote: "Another case of bad representation, This Fool in a cheap suit talking big money."

A bit uncalled for.

And as you can see on the image provided, Khabib was in no mood to take 50's rant lightly.

The Russian fighter simply replied: "Never talk bad about my brother."

Any chance of making the switch to Bellator appears to be over.

The most likely course of action for the Russia now appears to be either a return to UFC to fight Tony Ferguson or a boxing bout against Floyd Mayweather.

Whichever one happens, it will attract an enormous amount of attention.
