The real Slim Shady stood up ... and promoted UFC 257 on Twitter

Eminem is tweeting about UFC and no, it has nothing to do with Ronda Rousey’s “flat little badonkadonk.”

The real Slim Shady is instead promoting the upcoming UFC 257 pay-per-view (PPV) event, headlined by the lightweight rematch between former 155-pound titleholder Conor McGregor and ex-interim champion Dustin Poirier on Jan. 23 in Abu Dhabi.

“Notorious” scratched “The Diamond” during their featherweight clash at UFC 178.

UFC frequently uses rap/hip-hop to promote its upcoming fight cards, probably for much longer than most fans remember, though I think after this embarrassing incident it finally has the common decency to first ask permission.

The song in the above clip is “Higher” from Eminem.

Where am I supposed to go from here?
Really I have no idea.
All I know is every time I think I hit my ceiling,
I go higher than I’ve ever fuckin’ been.

We’ll see who hits their ceiling and who goes higher in less than a month.
