50 Cent has caused a bit of stir by posting a pic of himself with Bellator’s Scott Coker, and relaying he’s working on “something” mind blowing…So, why was the rap star meeting with Bellator’s President?
Yes, recently 50 (Curtis James Jackson III) shared out the image and comments below, and understandably, it’s prompting discussions in the MMA world.

Well, since then, MMA Junkie spoke with Coker, and here’s what he had to say about the meeting:
“I explained to him a lot about our fighter-recruitment system and how we build athletes and sign free agents,” Coker said.“He was interested. He had a lot of questions – a lot of good questions.”
Coker also added that he thinks 50 has “genuine interest” in MMA, so, guess we’ll see what happens. The rapper did dive into the promotional side of boxing a few years ago, before he ended up declaring bankruptcy.
Might we see 50 starting up a management company for MMA fighters?
