It looks like Bellator MMA will be forking over a payment of $1 million to rapper 50 Cent.
For the past several months, 50 and Bellator MMA President Scott Coker have been in discussions with one another. Nobody knew exactly what the pair could’ve been discussing, with some fans speculating that 50 could be negotiating to actually fight for the promotion.
50 Cent recently fed these rumors by teasing a fight challenge towards Bellator heavyweight Rampage Jackson.
