Earlier this week rapper/actor 50 Cent (Curtis Jackson) sent the mixed martial arts community in to a buzz after he teased a potential fight between himself and former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson on Instagram.
Most fight fans laughed off the Fifty’s social media post assuming it to be a simple publicicty stunt.
However, shortly after his now infamous Instagram post regarding a potential scrap with “Rampage”, 50 Cent shared a photo of what appeared to be a business meeting with Bellator MMA president Scott Coker.

“I’m busy working on something, that’s gonna blow your mind. #thebag” – 50 Cent
50 Cent, also known as Curtis Jackson, is no stranger to combat sports. The now 42-year-old is a former Golden Gloves boxing champion and was also instrumental in helping form “The Money Team” with Floyd Mayweather.
While 50 Cent’s future in mixed martial arts still remains unclear at this time, that hasn’t stopped the famed rapper from starting beef with yet another of the sports super stars.
“50” took to Twitter where he posted the following photo of himself alongside former UFC kingpin Jon Jones and multiple time promotional title challenger Chael Sonnen which included a jab at the “American Gangster”.
