UFC 128 Rumor: 50 Cent To Accompany Jon Jones To Cage vs. Shogun Rua

Nick Caron@@nicholascaronAnalyst IMarch 16, 2011

Jon Jones may be taking a page out of Anderson Silva's book and using fellow celebrities to increase his own marketability.

Silva made headlines across the globe when he had actor and martial artist Steven Seagal accompany him to the cage at UFC 126.

Jones may be ready to do something very similar, though not in the form of a fellow martial artist. Instead, rumors are circulating that rapper 50 Cent may be joining "Bones" during his walk to the cage.

Speculation started on Tuesday afternoon, when 50 Cent sent out the following message from his Twitter page, @50Cent:

Follow @jonnybones to the ring for @ufc 128 this sat for the light heavy weight championship of the world. http://plixi.com/p/84235873

The rapper then sent out a tweet to Ultimate Fighting Championship President, Dana White:

@danawhite stop being mad that god gave @jonnybones grace and style.... @ufc http://plixi.com/p/84236319

Though none of this confirms that 50 Cent will either be in attendance or coming to the cage with Jones, where there is smoke, there is often fire.

Don't be surprised if Jones has the platinum-selling artist by his side as he walks to the cage for his showdown with Mauricio "Shogun" Rua for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship.

We may even be treated to a live performance of Jones' entrance song, "God Gave Me Style."
