Aspire 99: Jones vs. Gracie PBP Commentary


Coming up we have a welterweight MMA rules bout between Russell Tyrone Jones (ranked 15 p4p, 2 weight class) and Ramon Gracie (ranked 73 p4p, 11 weight class). Tyrone Jones's ring entrance music is that housewives' favourite, Ol' Dirty Bastard - Brooklyn Zoo. Gracie has chosen Jiu Jitsu: Vai Finaliza! as his entrance music, which hasn't gone down very well with the crowd. 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.
