50 Cent Claims Conor McGregor Was Lucky After Khabib Nurmagomedov Fight

50 Cent offered Khabib Nurmagomedov $2 million to leave UFC and join their rivals Bellator and then took yet another shot at Conor McGregor, claiming he was lucky with the end of the fight.

Some rivalries make sense, like geographical or historical rivalries but some don’t seem to really make much sense at all, like Brighton and Crystal Palace or 50 Cent and Conor McGregor.

The pair have had a war of words, mainly over social media, ever since the Irishman changed sport from MMA to boxing to take on Floyd Mayweather, in the summer of 2017.

Whilst the Irishman may have returned to UFC the feud has continued and the rapper was very happy to see McGregor lose to Khabib Nurmagomedov last week.

With everything that happened after the fight and since the American messaged the Russian today to offer him a lot of money to leave the UFC:

However ‘Cent’ couldn’t help himself and also had to have a pop at McGregor in an interaction with the Russian, who has become his friend.

The rapper basically said that the lightweight champion shouldn’t have let go of the hold that ended the fight and that McGregor was lucky he didn’t decide to carry on with it:

The issue surrounds the fact that the Nevada State Athletic Commission has so far stopped Khabib from having the $2 million purse from the fight at UFC 229.

On top of that the promotion are threatening to sack his teammate Zubaira Tukhugov as he was the man who got into the octagon post fight and attacked McGregor as Khabib attacked Dillon Danis on the outside.

‘The Eagle’ has claimed that their is hypocrisy in the punishment, and potential punishment, as nothing happened to McGregor or his team after the attack on the bus Khabib was on before UFC 223 earlier this year.

We only hope the rivalry ends with McGregor taking on 50 Cent in the octagon.
