Bryce Mitchell has been all over the news lately for trying to lobby for a sport on Joe Rogan Experience in all the wrong ways.
Mitchell is a longtime conspiracy theorist however it’s only recently that he revealed that ‘Flat Earth’ is a hill he’s willing to die on. Mitchell has been insulting and calling out Rogan repeatedly for a ‘debate’.
This comes on the wings of a kooky appearance Mitchell made on the MMA hour last year during which he tried to school Ariel Helwani on Qanon lore.
Now Mitchell is changing his tune and focusing on what’s actually real – his rapping career. Despite being, well Caucasian, Mitchell is a decent rapper – much better than say Tyron Woodley.
Mitchell recently released a new rap song and accompanying music video to promote his forthcoming comeback to the Octagon at UFC 282 against division star Ilia Topuria.
The song and video also seem to address the topic of athlete pay in UFC.
The last time Mitchell competed was at UFC 272 in March. He beat experienced Muay Thai striker Edson Barboza by unanimous decision. Mitchell has an amazing 15-0 professional record.
German-born featherweight contender Topuria hasn’t competed since March. However, he did make a short appearance at lightweight against Jai Herbert at UFC London. In the match, he won with a stunning one-punch knockout in the second round.
Bryce Mitchell was scheduled to headline an event earlier this month against Movsar Evloev. He is another unbeaten featherweight grappler. However, the fight was postponed when the former sustained an unexplained injury back in October.
On his official Twitter account, Bryce Mitchell posts a little rap clip in which he says,
“I hop on the saddle,
I ride into battle,
I took lots of hits so you know I’m not fragile.
Fightin’ real brutally, make it look beautifully,
really ain’t new to me, do this sh*t usually.
I don’t get paid much so I spend it real frugally,
praise be to God there ain’t sh*t you can’t do to me.”
Since beginning his time in the Octagon in July 2018, Bryce Mitchell has won six straight fights, including major victories over Charles Rosa, Andre Fili, and Matt Sayles.
