Friday evening, 50 posted, “I think it’s wrong what the UFC is doing to Khabib, they didn’t do the same thing to McGregor.”
He then offered, “I’ll pay 2 million cash tonight if he will fight for me at Bellator,” adding that “I’ll deal with Dana and your contract later. The UFC is not the only game in town.”
50 Cent has become somewhat of an ambassador for Bellator, and recently signed a deal to market merchandise with his famous tagline, “Get the Strap.”
It didn’t take long for Khabib to mull over the offer, and the UFC Lightweight Champion said, “Just send me location.”
Khabib’s response was a callback from his fight with Conor McGregor, where he offered to fight the Irishman wherever he wanted.
50 is not playing though, and quickly answered back, “Khabib I’m dead serious.”
Ever since UFC 229 and the blowup that ensued after Khabib tapped out McGregor, Dana and the UFC have clearly sided with The Notorious, and seemingly turned their back on the actual champion.
Get the strap.
