Superstar Rapper Says He Might Get Into The Fighting Game, But There’s A Catch

Rapper Wiz Khalifa didn’t seem completely turned off to the idea of getting into the professional fighting game when asked about it by TMZ.

“You gotta pay me a whole bunch of money to get me to fight in there. You know what I’m saying? That’s why I just train. I train with the best. All the trainers show me the best sh*t. All the fighters show me hella love,” Khalifa recently told TMZ Sports when asked about the fighting game. He also made it clear that he certainly enjoys rapping more than fighting.

Yeah, I’d say that it’s more than fair to request a bunch of money to leave the rap game in order to enter the fighting game.

Let’s take a look. In order to be a rapper, you just have to write solid rhymes and have fans that love you. There’s no real threat to your health or safety, unless you got shot in a rap beef. That’s not overly likely to happen in 2018. (SLIDESHOW: Check Out The Hottest Women In The UFC)

Fighters get the pulp beaten out of them on a regular basis. That’s literally what they’re paid to do. They’re paid to be fighters. There are a lot of things that can go very wrong. Just watch a couple UFC fights if you don’t believe me.

I think that Khalifa is making a smart decision by sticking the safer and more lucrative profession.
