The concept of a music label sponsoring fighters is nothing new. However, one ambitious label has decided to sponsor an entire team. According to MMAMania.com, Coalition Fight Music will be sponsoring Team Cesar Gracie, providing entrance music for the fighters. The deal is expected to begin with Nick Diaz’s entrance music for his upcoming superfight with GSP at UFC 137.
Hopefully unrelated is Nick Diaz’s cameo in Stockton rapper Ben Kaos’ music video for “In It 2 Win It (Remix)”. In the video, Nick Diaz is shown training, throwing up a Stockton Heybuddy… you know, just being Nick Diaz. As for the actual song, let’s just say that Ben Kaos is no Miilkbone. And that’s not exactly a compliment to Miilkbone.
By the way, the song that Coalition Fight Music is making for Nick Diaz will also be featured in the upcoming Supremacy MMA video game and the upcoming Jackie Chan flick “Life is War”. So now The Scrap Pack has the support of its own label and D-list actor? Your move, Black House.
