Coming up we have a featherweight MMA rules bout between Koulouraki Souvlaki (ranked 62 p4p, 9 weight class) and Blake Green (ranked 85 p4p, 10 weight class). Souvlaki kept the crowd waiting but all that was forgotten when his ring entrance music started. The incomparable musical genius that is Greek Anthem. Green is bobbing his head along to his entrance song: Sugar Rush. These two fighters really are very evenly matched on the feet - it will be fascinating to see who can assert themselves in that aspect of the fight.
