Legendary rapper 50 Cent shared a ONE Championship highlight on his Instagram.
ONE’s expansion into North America has led to an increased audience with more recognition throughout social media. As a result, celebrities like 50 Cent are starting to notice the high-quality product.
The 47-year-old rapper recently posted an Instagram video to his 29.1 million followers of a fighter getting upkicked in ONE, with the caption saying:
“👀looks like he changed his mind about life. LOL #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi”
Once the fighter in the video, Kairat Akhmetov, was up kicked twice, his facial expression quickly changed, leading 50 Cent to make the funny caption about him questioning his life decisions. When the rapper shared the video on Instagram, people filled the comment section with various jokes and statements, including some saying:
“He went straight back to his childhood days and saw him self as a kid”
“He was trying to get some lol homeboy say ohhh he’ll naaaahhh 😂😂”

“Gotta watch those upkicks! LEGAL in MMA, fam 👌”
