50 Cent Will Award $1 Million To Bellator Welterweight Grand Prix Winner

50 Cent won’t be the only one saying, “I Get Money”.

The G-Unit rapper and his new champagne, Le Chemin du Roi Champagne, are teaming up with Bellator. The “comprehensive relationship” includes a new apparel line and a champagne sponsorship.

Perhaps most importantly, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson will offer $1 million in cash to the winner of the upcoming Bellator Welterweight Grand Prix.

ā€œI am excited toĀ partner with theĀ Bellator Viacom franchise,” Jackon said in a press release. “Mixed martial artsĀ yields some ofĀ theĀ most action-packed eventsĀ in the world.Ā Iā€™m excited for people to see how I plan to shake up MMA with theĀ integration of my ‘Get The Strap’ trademarkĀ as well as my luxury champagne Le Chemin du Roi.ā€

ā€œBellator has a roster filled with some of the most charismatic athletes in the world,ā€ he added. Ā ā€œAs my relationship with Bellator deepens, you will see me moving into fighter management opportunities that will allow me to integrate top stars into both scripted and unscripted projects across the Viacom networks, as well as the other outlets I have access to.ā€

50 Cent and Scott Coker have been closely linked for some time now. The entrepreneur was even rumoured to step in the cage. It seems, however, 50 Cent will stick to sweeping the competition behind the scenes.

The Bellator Welterweight Grand Prix kicks off on Saturday, Sept. 29 with a trilogy bout between former champions Douglas Lima and Andrey Koreshkov. Bellator 206 also features a super fightĀ between welterweight and middleweight championsĀ Rory MacDonald and Gegard Mousasi.
