how has-been Yonkers MC and champion dog-breeder (right?
) DMX was going to fight an actor by the name of Eric Martinez
in a mixed martial arts bout in Alabama next month? Well, over the weekend TMZ posted a couple of crucial updates to that spectacularly tacky saga: DMX, after bragging that he wouldn't train because that would be unfair to Martinez, demanded
that the fight be fixed; and when Thunder Productions, the company behind the fight, refused, DMX dropped out, and will be replaced
by everybody's favorite rapping chef, Coolio
Regarding Coolio's preparations for the fight next month in Alabama, the production company told TMZ: "he is going to take this seriously." As will everyone else, I'm sure.
