CEC 359 PBP Commentary


Coming up we have a middleweight MMA rules bout between Armo Kuusela and Flavio Lazzarini. Kuusela's entrance music is Promentory. A fine choice. Lazzarini has chosen Goffredo Mameli - 'Il Canto degli Italiani' as his entrance music, which hasn't gone down very well with the crowd. Well, I have no idea who's going to take this one!
