Wiz Khalifa has some amazing fighting skills, yet it shows up the artist has chosen he’d preferably stick to rapping than take a MMA session unless “a whole bunch of money” is put on the table.
Sports writer and MMA coach Jay Glazer, who established the Unbreakable Performance rec center where Khalifa trains, as of late revealed to TMZ Sports the rapper could be an expert contender on the off chance that he needed to.
Speaking to the same outlet [contains NSFW language], Khalifa agreed but isn’t eager to step into the Octagon in a professional capacity.
“I could [go pro],” he said. “I like rapping better. I wouldn’t be a professional fighter, I’d just fight, know what I’m saying?”
Asked if he would consider competing in the UFC or Bellator, he said: “I like Bellator, I like the organisation. They’re super cool and their fights are fun to watch, but like, you got to pay me a whole bunch of money to get me to fight, man.”
“I train with the best, all my trainers show me all the best s–t, all the fighters show me hella love, so that s–t’s fun, man,” he added.
Asked if there are any celebrities he would like to spar with, he replied: “All of ’em.”
Khalifa has shared a look at his training on Twitter [contains NSFW language]:

The 30-year-old, real name Cameron Jibril Thomaz, has been practising for around a year and has trained with the likes of UFC stars Cat Zingano, Luke Rockhold and Chuck Liddell. UFC strawweight Felice Herrig also called him out last July.
Khalifa has no plans to turn his hobby into a profession, though—unless anyone is prepared to make him an offer he can’t refuse.
