Grand Prix RIO PBP Commentary


Coming up we have a welterweight kickboxing rules bout between Sigurd Ragnarsson (ranked 4078 p4p, 437 weight class) and Cory McDonnell (ranked 17482 p4p, 549 weight class). Ragnarsson's ring entrance music is that housewives' favourite, Wardruna-Blood Eagle. McDonnell is bobbing his head along to his entrance song: Jorge Quintero - 300 Violin Orchestra. 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.
