50 Cent has SERIOUSLY upgraded his personal security team ... 'cause one of the guys watching his back is UFC Hall of Famer (and ex-WWE superstar) Ken Shamrock!!!!

49-year-old Shamrock was spotted on the rapper's personal protection detail at the CES convection in Las Vegas yesterday ... and afterward, Ken confirmed he's now working for a company that does private security for several "high-end clients," including Fiddy.

After the convention, Ken tweeted that it was a "pleasure" working for 50 ... and said the rapper is, "By far one of the classiest gents I have ever worked with."

As for Ken's fighting career -- he may not have given up on the ring entirely ... just last month, he appeared in a wrestling event in Costa Rica.

But for now, don't screw with Mr. Cent ... or you might end up in a nasty ankle lock.

He has him for security in case a 70 yr old asks for an autograph. I can see it now...."excuse me ma'am you can't come any closer with your cane or I will figure 4 you into submission"

Sorry, man how much can he be making everyday, got to be only the time 50cent is out, and he's not out 8 hours a day, everyday. $500 at least every time he goes out, maybe $1,000? Then there's a lul, if he does that 4-6 times a month, that's only $4-6K. Not exactly good retirement money..
