All James Bennett wanted was to feel a little love and support from 50 Cent, too. Is that too much to ask?
Burnett was on bottom and pressed up against the fence with Tywan Claxton in top position during the second round of their featherweight fight last weekend at Bellator 221. You might’ve caught this on the DAZN live stream, but it was at that moment that Claxton noticed 50 Cent (real name: Curtis Jackson) was sitting cageside, just feet away.
If you happened to miss it, here you go (via Twitter):
But that’s not everything. 50 Cent took the time to acknowledge Claxton and encouraged him to fight on, which was captured by Bellator cameras (you can watch in the video above). The best part, though: Bennett feeling left out and telling 50 Cent, “Hey, you should be cheering for me! C’mon cheer for me!”
