Rapper DMX is really trying to make a comeback after being released from jail (http://www.ballerstatus.com/2009/05/14/dmx-released-from-arizona-jail/) back in May following a string of arrests over the past two years. While he's continuing to work on new music, his most recent attempt to get back into the spotlight is by entering the world of mixed martial arts (MMA).
The rapper is set to fight in an upcoming bout in December against a member of his management team, as a part of an event being put on by Thunder Promotions in Birmingham, Alabama.


X will fight musician Eric Martinez on the undercard where former UFC fight Tank Abbott will face professional heavyweight boxer Butterbean.


Martinez is CEO of Power Moves Entertainment, a management firm, event promotions company and record label, based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and currently represents the rapper.


It's unclear what kind of training DMX is undergoing to prepare himself for the upcoming match.


The event goes down on December 12 at the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Center. For more info, visit ThunderPromotions.com (http://www.thunderpromotions.com/).
Previous celebrity MMA combatants include Spencer Pratt and Jose Conseco, who lasted just 77 seconds in the ring.

i reckon x would know how to throw a punch or two, and im GUESSING the guy he is fighting has as much ground work training as him, it should be interesting, i think all hip hop beefs should be settled in the octagon

So basically he's fighting his employee.


Publicity stunt.

If this wa a genuine fight in any way, it wouldnt be an undercard fight, it would be headline.

Its a fake thing.

what a faggot dmx is

DMX has been replaced by rapper Coolio after organizers behind a celebrity-boxing match chose not to fix the bout so X could win, TMZ reports.
The rapper signed up for the mixed martial arts bout sponsored by Thunderbird Promotions soon after being released from prison in May. He was scheduled to fight Power Moves Entertainment CEO Eric Martinez. But X's management reportedly had a few demands for Thunderbird. X's manager Nakia Walker wrote a letter to the company asking, "Event Promoter and Management agree that [DMX] is scheduled to win Boxing Challenge."
Thunderbird didn't quite agree and have filed a suit against X for breach of contract.
Coolio is scheduled to fight in Alabama next month. -Linda Hobbs
