Meanwhile, the next fight of Nurmagomedov's teammate, Zubaira Tukhugov, reportedly was canceled following his role in the brawl that ensued after the Nurmagomedov-McGregor fight.

With Nurmagomedov's record now standing at a ideal 27-0, whispers of a rematch between both men have been in circulation but as someone who has witnessed McGregor fighting frequently during his rise, I think it's fair to say that going straight back in there with Khabib isn't the route I'd like to see him take. "I'll pay 2 million cash tonight if he will fight for me at Bellator".

The Dagestani fighter had his entire $2 million purse from UFC 229 withheld by the Nevada State Athletic Commission after he jumped into the crowd to attack one of Conor McGregor " s cornermen following the October 6 main event in Las Veags. White has indicated the UFC could strip Nurmagomedov of the belt. Bellator MMA President Scott Coker revealed at the Bellator 208 post-fight press conference last night (via MMAjunkie) that his new business partner called him to ask about Khabib's situation.

"If you think that I'll keep silent, then you are mistaken".

Nurmagomedov's challenge came in a video posted on Instagram by Mayweather's promoter Leonard Ellerbe who indicated he ran into the UFC fighter at a fight card in Russian Federation. "I can't tell 50 Cent what to say or not say, believe me". The rap star recently signed a lucrative sponsorship deal with the promotion.

"I think what he means by that is like him as a manager", Coker said.

"The day before the fight I did not sleep at all", he told Russian TV on Sunday.

50 Cent has business ties with Bellator having signed a clothing deal with the company last month, before announcing he would award a $1m cash prize to the victor of the stable's Welterweight Grand Prix. It appears Jackson will take the UFC champion up on that offer.
