He even won the St. Louis Amateur Baseball Association’s MVP trophy in 1992.

“I can’t wait to reunite with my man Nelly,” says Bayless. “Seven years ago, he was the first rapper we ever had on my former debate show, and he was a revelation. He can debate sports with the same passion, guts and clever creativity that he writes and performs his classic music. He and I share this: we think we’ve never lost a debate. Nelly was made for UNDISPUTED on FS1.”

“I’m really excited to join FOX Sports and work with Skip, Shannon and Joy to discuss all the sports topics I love,” adds Nelly.
