People will take any chance they can to converse with a celebrity, even if it’s during a round of hand-to-hand combat with 50 Cent in the audience.
Bellator fighter Tywan “Air” Claxton was taking on James Bennett at Bellator 221 Saturday night at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL.
While pressing his opponent up against the cage, Claxton spotted the “In Da Club” rapper cageside, and didn’t miss a beat when he shoulted, “What’s up 50?!”
50 was impressed that Claxton made the introduction, while “killing a guy,” but seeing as Fiddy is an investor in Bellator it was probably a good career move for Claxton.
Another good career move for Claxton — going on to beat his opponent in the 3rd round to end the fight.
