Bryce Mitchell wasn’t able to get in the octagon this year, but he’s apparently been logging plenty of studio time.
The UFC bantamweight contender — aka “Thugnasty” — dropped his debut rap single, Darkansas, on Monday, as a teaser for his upcoming Pasture Fire mix tape, which will be released Wednesday, he announced.
Mitchell’s first release features the Arkansas native flowing on topics such as his hometown of Cabot, his faith and his fighting career. The UFC and Conor McGregor get name-dropped, of course. Up next for Mitchell in the octagon is Edson Barboza at a UFC Fight Night event scheduled for March 5.
