DMX to Fight in “Alabama Pride” MMA Event

29 Sep

DMXStill on the comeback trail, DMX has taken yet another unexpected turn. Now, he has signed on to fight the undefeated mixed martial arts fighter, Eric Martinez.

The fight is set to take place in December of this year. Despite an appearance from the still-big name of DMX, the headlining fight will be between Butterbean and Tank Abbott. The fight will take place December 12 at Birmingham Jefferson Convention Complex.

This is not the only unexpected move from DMX this year. Apparently, he is working on a collaboration album with R&B singer, Tyrese. While talking about a possible album with Black Ty, he decided to let Jay-Z, his former partner in rhyme, have it. There were rumors of a feud between the two, DMX’s comments made that obvious.

At the 2009 VH1 Hip Hop Honors, DMX surprisingly ended his decade-long feud with Ja Rule. That news had hip hop buzzing for days, the move was so groundbreaking that other rappers even spoke on the renewed friendship.

All of this is likely coming to build up a DMX comeback as he has finally addressed his Jay-Z issues, reunited with the Ruff Ryders and Ja Rule, now he plans to do mixed martial arts fighting.
