In an interview with TMZ, Ali Abdelaziz, the manager of Khabib Nurmagomedov, said that the UFC lightweight champion would not leave the promotion for less than $50 million. This comes after 50 Cent made a $2 million offer to Khabib to come to Bellator, which Abdelaziz called “disrespectful.” 50 Cent is now working with Bellator to acquire fighters.

Abdelaziz said: “For $2 million, [that won’t even] open a Coca-Cola bottle for Khabib. Khabib make a lot of money. We talk about $50 MILLION and up, we can talk. But $2 mil? This is garbage.

He also took shots at Conor McGregor, who previously accused him of being connected to 9/11.

Ali added: “I’ll slap the shit out of Conor. F**k Conor McGregor. Conor’s a bitch. He quit in the fight. You cannot tell me Conor McGregor is a man. He is nothing.

Ali was also asked about what Dillon Danis allegedly said to Khabib at UFC 229 to get him to jump the cage, and Ali said he was “disgusted.” Danis allegedly called Khabib a “fucking Muslim rat.” Ali claims that the officials have al the evidence they need, but he doesn’t “want to repeat it because it’s so disgusting.”

Finally, Ali said that he wants to set up a superfight between Khabib and Floyd Mayweather, stating that the Russian-born fighter would win if Mayweather wanted to try MMA.
