Coming up we have a lightweight MMA rules bout between Jomuton Xuwatanabe and Shinsuke Nakamura. Xuwatanabe's entrance music is Slo Burn, "Prizefighter". A fine choice. Nakamura has chosen The Rising Sun as his entrance music. Both these guys have really solid chins. Will we see a standup war or will they both decide that a knockout is unlikely and try to win the fight elsewhere?
