Curtis Jackson, who is known as ‘50 Cent’, has started to show great interest to the MMA world. Recently he signed a deal with one of the most famous fighting promotions Bellator, that he will add 1 million dollars to the salary of the future winner of Bellator Welterweight Grand Prix.
However, this time he drew his attention to the winner of the recent champion fight – Khabib Nurmagomedov. Jackson was wondered by the fact that UFC was so strict to the champion. He remembered that McGregor had shown worse behavior many times before and had never been punished or criticized so badly.
Curtis also promised he would pay 2 million dollars to Khabib and one of his friends – featherweight fighter Zubaira Tukhugov in the case they had the desire to join Bellator. He told he was ready to solve issues connected with Khabib’s current UFC contract and to have a talk with Dana White.
Khabib Nurmagomedov saw the Instagram post and showed his interest with his comment. He also invited Jackson for a meeting in Dagestan.
The case of the post-fight conflict of Nurmagomedov and McGregor is still in the process of investigation. However, it’s known that Nevada Athletic Commission withheld $2 million purse of the fighter. The sum is equal to the award promised by 50 Cent.
McGregor who is also suspected in the case has received his $3 million cash right after the fight and hasn’t faced any problems with that.
Representatives of Nevada Commission and UFC President Dana White told they would probably punish other participants of the melee, including members of Nurmagomedov’s team. Khabib reacted to the message, telling he was ready to leave UFC and to break the contract in the case if any of his friends or team members suffered.
