When asked if he’d consider getting into Bellator or the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), he said that ‘Bellator is very cool’ and that he ‘likes their organization.’  

‘Their fights are fun to watch, but you’ve got to pay me a whole bunch of money to get me to fight, man,’ he added.

‘That’s why I just train… I train with the best. All the trainers show me the best s**t, all the fighters show me hella love, so it’s just fun, man,’ he added.

The injury is so serious Khalifa appears to need surgery to fix it, since a fan commented on Hot 104.7’s Instagram, ‘Dude can’t sing because his foot hurts,’ while the radio station responded, ‘surgery sucks.’ 

Khalifa hasn’t revealed exactly how he plans to make up missing the show to his fans, or how long he’ll be recovering from this injury for.
