Wiz Khalifa Is Practicing MMA Hand and Feet Skills in New Video [WATCH]
Wiz Khalifa works hard and it appears he kicks hard too. When the rapper is not rocking the mic, he’s in the gym getting his MMA on.
TMZ Sports posted a video of Wizzy “throwing dem hands” with Fox’s Jay Glazer. For those who don’t know, Glazer is football analyst for Fox Sports and a fan of mixed martial arts. He also runs a MMA-style training facility for NFL players called Unbreakable Gym in Los Angeles.
In the video above, you can see Wiz throwing punches with the mitts and later, he works on his kicking skills with UFC star Cat Zingano — who is impressed. We don’t know if the Taylor Gang leader is training to become a MMA fighter but he’s been working out at the gym for three months now. Even if Wiz is not training to be a fighter, it still a good form of exercise and it definitely helps with relieving stress.
According to TMZ Sports, Wiz was performing his workout while he was on vacation. The rap stoner also ventured to Napa Valley for a wine-tasting trip along with girlfriend, Izabela Guedes, sports personality Michael Strahan and Jay Glazer as well.
Meanwhile, Wiz will be hitting the festivals this summer and fall, including the Thrival Innovation + Music Festival in his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pa. The festival runs from Sept. 29-30 and features Logic and KYLE on the bill.
