Legions comes into the arena with For Heavy Metal we will die! blaring out of the sound system. Tavares has chosen I DON'T GET TIRED as his entrance music. I'm sure you'll be fascinated to know that I was talking to some pointless Z list celebrity before the fight and he thought that Cristian Tavares was going to win. Let's see if he was right.
