Undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov pummeled his way to a submission victory over Conor McGregor back at UFC 229. After the brawl that followed UFC 229’s main event, however, the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has since frozen Khabib Nurmagomedov’s $2 million payday while they pursue an investigation into the incident.
After his teammate was banned from the UFC for his alleged involvement in the UFC 229 brawl, Khabib Nurmagomedov revealed that he will leave the UFC if his teammate is not reinstated. Meanwhile hip-hop icon 50 Cent, who recently landed a partnership deal with Bellator MMA, has gone on to offer Khabib Nurmagomedov $2 million to transfer from the UFC to Bellator MMA.
Speaking to TMZ Sports, Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager Ali Abdelaziz has since come forward with a few words on the offer.
“For $2 million, He will not open a Coca-Cola bottle.” Abdelaziz said. “Khabib makes a lot of money. You want to talk about $50 million and up, then we can talk. $2 million is garbage.”
