Rapper Fat Joe: MMA fighters ‘are pound-for-pound the toughest athletes in the world’
By Marc Raimondi @marc_raimondi on Mar 13, 2015, MMA Fighting
Fat Joe is a boxing guy going way back. He and Big Pun were two of the first rappers to ever walk a boxer out to the ring when they did it for Felix Trinidad before his bout with Oscar De La Hoya in 1999.
But the Bronx born hip-hop artist has a lot of love for MMA, too. He’ll be performing at the House of Fame Mixed Martial Arts event in Coral Gables, Fla., on Friday night. The card is being billed USA vs. Cuba and will feature American athletes pitted against Cubans.
“These guys are pound-for-pound the toughest athletes in the world,” Fat Joe told Ariel Helwani on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour. “And there’s no way around it.”
