Busta Rhymes to perform at CBS-EliteXC event

Rapper Busta Rhymes will perform his current single "Don't Touch Me (Throw Some Water On 'Em)" at CBS-EliteXC "Saturday Night Fights" on May 31 in Newark, New Jersey.

Rhymes' performance will occur when he accompanies Brett Rogers during the heavyweight's entrance towards the cage for the opening bout of the televised card.

"I'm a huge fan of the excitement and intensity of mixed martial arts, and it's a thrill for me to be a part of the most important event in this sport's young history," Rhymes stated. "My high-energy performances are a perfect match to get the fighters in the perfect mindset for total domination inside the EliteXC cage on May 31st."

For its "Street Certified" event on Showtime last February, EliteXC tapped Miami-based rapper Pitbull to perform before the headlining bout between Kimbo Slice and Tank Abbott.
