I️ think it’s wrong what the UFC is doing to Khabib, they didn’t do the same thing to McGregor. I’ll pay 2 million cash tonight if he will fight for me at Bellator. pic.twitter.com/K7QYxR4IHI

Jackson’s offer follows last weekend’s publicized post-UFC 229 Khabib and Conor McGregor brawl.
Nurmagomedov later responded to the post in the comment section with his trade “send me the location” before inviting Jackson to visit Dagestan. The $2 million Jackson is offering would match Nurmagomedov’s fight purse for UFC 229, which is currently being held by the Nevada State Athletic Commission while the continue their the investigation of the brawl. McGregor, on the other hand, received his full $3 million paycheck. (MMA Fighting)
Despite the major opportunity, reports claim it’s unlikely Khabib will part ways with the UFC.
Although the rapper may be putting a generous offer on the table, it’s ultimately likely a very meaningless one. Nurmagomedov is contractually obligated to the UFC and won’t be able to part ways with the company unless he’s released or opts to breach his contract, which is highly unlikely. (MMA Junkie)
In late September, 50 Cent announced a new Viacom and Bellator MMA deal.
“You already know. We here, I’m celebrating, just did a new deal. Viacom. Bellator. MMA. It’s going down. You see I got the WBA right here. This right here, next year it’s gonna just be me versus me for Hustler of the Year. I’m doing it big. I’m the heavyweight champion of this sh*t right here. I got this sh*t going. You see me. Don King ain’t Don King. Don King’s old. I’m Don King. I’m the American Dream around this motherf*cking championship scene. Working the room like a motherf*cker. But they paid me, so, check this out. Give me something, a little watch, something like that, I send something over there. All that little money, the money you were upset you didn’t put into the actual boxing sh*t, I’m not upset about that sh*t at all. Not at all. If we were cool, I wouldn’t be making a deal like this right now. My n*gga, you did it. You did it, Sha. I know you didn’t mean to do it, you little retarded motherf*cker but you did it. [laughs]”
