50 Cent offers a big money deal to UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in order to sign with Bellator MMA.

50 Cent Making Moves

This is the latest attempt by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson to make some moves in the landscape of mixed martial arts. It should be noted that the rapper does have some connections with the Viacom-owned promotion as recently signed an apparel deal with Bellator. He also revealed that he would be giving out a $1 million cash prize to the winner of the Bellator Welterweight Grand Prix.

Recently, Jackson took to his official Twitter account where he gave the offer to the UFC lightweight champion. He also brought up how the UFC is not the only game in town and that he would be willing to deal with UFC President Dana White about getting him out of his contract. This is after the melee at UFC 229 that involved Nurmagomedov, Conor McGregor and their respective teams.

How We Got Here

The money deal would see Khabib and his teammate, featherweight Zubaira Tukhugov, make the jump from the UFC to Bellator MMA to fight. This comes off the heels of Nurmagomedov threatening to quit the UFC should the UFC release his teammate in the fallout of the UFC 229.

50 Cent Offers

Jackson wrote the following on his official Instagram account, which later saw Khabib respond in the comment section by stating “send me the location.”

“@khabib_nurmagomedov I’ll deal with Dana and your contract later. The UFC is not the only game in town. Zubaira is welcome also. #bellator #lecheminduroi.”

The Deal

For those who may not recall, the reason for such an exact amount of money offered by the rapper is due to it matching Nurmagomedov’s fight purse for UFC 229 that is held by the NSAC. McGregor received his full $3 million paycheck.

Floyd Mayweather believes Khabib Nurmagomedov should be fined huge for UFC 229 brawl.

The post Floyd Mayweather Thinks Khabib Will Receive ‘Huge’ Fine For ‘Unprofessional’ Brawl appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

Floyd Mayweather thinks UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov should receive a huge fine for starting the massive brawl at the UFC 229 pay-per-view event. We are a week removed from this incident and more fighters continue to come out to give their take on what appears to be the biggest news story of the year.

His Connection

The undefeated boxing legend does have some history with Conor McGregor and also knows the ins and outs of the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).

The boxing match between these fighters took place on August 26th, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada. It aired live on PPV (pay-per-view) for the low price of $100 for HD and $90 for SD. As seen in the fight, McGregor did show some good things in the ring considering that it was his first outing as a professional. However, he ultimately lost by TKO in the tenth round.

Opinion

Mayweather believes (H/T to Bloody Elbow) that Khabib jumping out of the Octagon and starting a brawl with the corner of the former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion was unprofessional.

“From what I heard was that [Khabib Nurmagomedov] after the fight, [Conor] McGregor‘s opponent jumped out the ring and was fighting people in the crowd,” said Mayweather in a recent interview on ITP Live. “Very unprofessional.”

Floyd Mayweather Thinks

The boxing legend also expects the NSAC to hand out a huge fine to the UFC champ and brought up how Zab Judah, who fought Floyd and got into a melee in the ring, received a huge fine for his actions.

“It’s going to be a huge fine, pretty sure,” the boxer continued. “Because with my fight, with Zab Judah, it was a crazy melee in the ring and there was a huge penalty, huge fine. If I’m not mistaken, seven figures. not to me, but could have been to Zab Judah or my uncle Roger or even Leonard Ellerbe.”

Punishment

Thus, at the end of the day, when a fighter acts out, there will be a punishment handed out. It should be noted that an NSAC hearing is scheduled for Oct. 24 where Khabib, as well as McGregor, will face the board for their actions. Thus, this is when we’ll know the outcome of this brawl whether that be a suspension or fine.

“So I know with a guy jumpin’ out the cage into the audience and fightin’ different people, the fine is going to be crazy.”

Rafael Dos Anjos Challenges Dillon Danis To Big-Money ‘Winner Takes All’ Fight

The war of words continues between these two fighters.

The post Rafael Dos Anjos Challenges Dillon Danis To Big-Money ‘Winner Takes All’ Fight appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

Rafael Dos Anjos challenges the training partner of former UFC lightweight and featherweight champ Conor McGregor to a fight that will be up for some big money.

Leading Up

The feud between RDA and Dillon Danis all started after the former UFC lightweight champion had some harsh comments about the UFC 229 brawl. RDA took to his official Twitter account where he called Danis a “nobody.” This led to Danis responding to RDA by challenging the former UFC champion to a fight.

Rafael Dos Anjos Challenges

Now, with Danis being serious about, RDA decided to take it one step further by offering a formal challenge. This includes putting big money on the line. He wrote the following on Twitter:

“Why don’t we do like you said to Kevin Lee? I put 100k you put 100k I can go to your gym or you come to my, we jump in the cage with no time whoever walks out take the 200k #yourmove.”

History

For those who may not remember, this feud has some history behind it as they have beefed before through the power of social media. Dos Anjos was supposed to defend the UFC lightweight title against McGregor in 2016. However, this fight got nixed once RDA pulled out with an injury. It would lead to Eddie Alvarez getting the title from Dos Anjos and McGregor later beat him at UFC 205.

Once Upon A Time

Danis recently brought up how Kevin Lee told MMAjunkie Radio that a $100,000 jiu-jitsu match with him was planned. This never happened though. However, Danis didn’t forget about it and brought the talk to life.

“You said you tapped me in a straight roll so I challenged you to show the world what you said was true while making 100k, I see a scared man here backing away from his words now bow down to the king of Jiu Jitsu.”

Khabib-Conor brawl is still the big talk these days as it’s arguably the biggest news story thus far this year.

The Khabib-Conor Brawl

This massive brawl that was started by Khabib Nurmagomedov at the UFC 229 pay-per-view event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Obviously, this led to chaos breaking out that involved the UFC champ, Conor McGregor, and their respective camps.

Nurmagomedov beat former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor by fourth-round neck crank in the main event. Following the fight, Khabib went flying out of the Octagon and got into a brawl with some of McGregor’s teammates including his training partner Dillon Danis.

New Angle

New footage of the melee is surfacing as the latest video angle gives fans a different look at what exactly happened. It’s safe to say that the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) would like to have access to this footage.

Regarding the footage, we can see three men from Khabib’s side swinging on McGregor inside the Octagon.

Past Videos

The previous videos show Conor taking a swing at one of Khabib’s teammates who were in the process of jumping the cage. This led to chaos breaking out inside of the Octagon.

Aftermath

Once this brawl was tamed, the men were arrested and subsequently released after McGregor decided it was best to not press charges. Now, the UFC lightweight champion and McGregor must go in front of the NSAC in order to find out their punishments going forward.

The UFC went out of their way to have the most security ever for this fight as they knew they might need it. You also have to give credit to the security and police officers on the way that they defused the situation the best they could.

Khabib Nurmagomedov Further Opens Up On UFC 229 Brawl

Khabib says that no one can confine the eagle to a cage.

The post Khabib Nurmagomedov Further Opens Up On UFC 229 Brawl appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

Khabib Nurmagomedov further opens up on his actions when he decided to start a brawl after his fight at UFC 229. The UFC lightweight champion continues to backtrack from the apology that he made after the event and incident. Instead, he’s doubling down on his beef with Conor McGregor and what happened last weekend.

On Sunday, Khabib returned home and the whole city of Kaspiysk was behind their fighter. He even went into a 26,000+ seat football stadium in Kaspiysk, Dagestan to address fans.

Khabib Nurmagomedov Further Opens Up

“I prayed to God for one thing, to be left alone in the cage with this clown,” Nurmagomedov said, courtesy of RT. “I asked him this every day. I prayed that we would have no injuries, that we would make weight, and regain our strength, and finally be locked in that cage. Because a lot was said outside that cage, and I said that once that octagon door is shut, I am not responsible for my actions.”

Nothing Has Changed

Khabib made it known that this rivalry with the former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion is not over. The reason for this is due to him not being ready to forgive McGregor for the comments that he made in the build-up to this fight. McGregor made some harsh comments about Khabib’s people among other things. Thus, this is the reason he thinks that jumping out of the Octagon to start a brawl with Dillon Danis was appropriate

“The first thing I wanted to show him, is the difference between our people, and his people,” said Nurmagomedov. “We know our history, our ancestors, and what our people have been through. Nothing can break us.”

Can’t Confine Him

Khabib also made it know that no one can confine an eagle to a cage and showed everyone just that.

“And with what happened afterwards, some people say I did the wrong thing, others that I did the right thing. You can’t confine an eagle to a cage. And I showed them that.”

Both Khabib & McGregor Face NSAC Complaints For UFC 229 Brawl

It was fully expected that Khabib Nurmagomedov would face a formal complaint for inciting an all-out brawl after the main event of last weekend’s UFC 229. It was not expected that his opponent Conor McGregor would face a complaint for the UFC 229 brawl as well. That’s just the case according to a report from […]

The post Both Khabib & McGregor Face NSAC Complaints For UFC 229 Brawl appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

It was fully expected that Khabib Nurmagomedov would face a formal complaint for inciting an all-out brawl after the main event of last weekend’s UFC 229. It was not expected that his opponent Conor McGregor would face a complaint for the UFC 229 brawl as well.

That’s just the case according to a report from ESPN tonight. Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) chairman Anthony Marnell revealed they would be filing complaints against both Khabib and McGregor. Temporary suspensions are also incoming.

The situation will be up for a hearing in November:

“We will be filing against Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov,” Marnell said. “Because we withheld one purse, we will have to move expeditiously to a complaint and hearing. “We have held 100 percent of one of the fighter’s money. Temporary suspensions will be out shortly, and we’re shooting for a final hearing date in November.”

Marnell said there were many dynamics in play here. He focused on Khabib’s teammate who jumped into the Octagon to strike McGregor three times:

“There are a lot of things here,” Marnell said. “There are a lot of charges that can be brought against a spectator who came over the barricade, through the commission section and into the Octagon to strike a fighter three times. For the record, I have a massive problem with that. That cannot happen.”

Charges Pending

Marnell claimed the NSAC knew who that man was. It may be the man who is boasting about slapping McGregor online. His next step was to speak with the attorney general to determine what charges could be brought against him:

“We’re taking a really hard look at that gentleman. We know exactly who he is and where he is. I have to let the attorney general determine — is that trespassing, disturbing the peace? That was a serious action and it deserves a serious consequence.”

Marnell then described Khabib’s potential punishment. He noted that the UFC champion would face both a fine and a suspension:

“Both. It’s always both. We could do one or the other, but at least in the chair’s mind, I think the commission will be entertaining a recommendation from the attorney general that will include both.”

Marnell closed by clarifying that the UFC 229 brawl was a very serious issue and putting it in perspective. This was not a brawl outside of the fight, but one at the actual fighting event. The melee is under the regulations of the commission as a result.

Marnell said the punishment has to fit the crime because of it:

“This is a serious issue, this is not a light issue,” Marnell said. “This isn’t, ‘We smacked each other in the face in a hotel lobby the week of a fight.’ This is the night of the event, and it needs to stay inside that field of combat. There are serious regulations and statutes about what took place, and the consequences have to match the actions.”
