Khabib Nurmagomedov has been offered an escape route from UFC after threatening to quit over the treatment of fellow Russian Zubaira Tukhugov.
Rapper 50 Cent has said he will pay Nurmagomedov $2million to fight for Bellator MMA — a rival franchise to UFC.
‘The UFC is not the only game in town,’ wrote 50 on Instagram, before the unofficial Bellator spokesman added that Tukhugov would also be welcome to transfer.

Writing on Instagram, 50 Cent claimed:
‘I think it’s wrong what the UFC is doing to Khabib’
‘I think it’s wrong what the UFC is doing to Khabib, they don’t do the same thing to McGregor. I’ll pay $2m cash tonight if he will fight for me at Bellator.’
Nurmagomedov replied to the Instagram post directly and told 50: ‘Just send me location’, before the In Da Club singer offered to ‘send a plane for you in the morning’.
Tukhugov stormed the octagon last weekend and punched Conor McGregor after the Irishman had submitted to Nurmagomedov in a lightweight title fight.
UFC president Dana White said in the aftermath that Tukhugov would never fight again in his company, before Nurmagomedov hit back with an ultimatum to say that if his ‘brother’ leaves so will he.
Sensing his opportunity to pounce and recruit some top talent, 50 added on Friday night: ‘I’ll deal with Dana and your contract later.’
Nurmagomedov and 50 had a brief conversation in public via the comments on the Insta post
