Coming up we have a welterweight MMA rules bout between Shinichi Onizuka and Gary Player. Onizuka comes to the cage accompanied by eMC - Stoopid. Player comes into a darkened arena with his song building. Kevin Gates feat. August Alsina - I Don't Get Tired kicks in, the lights come on and the crowd goes wild! What a showman! On his way into the cage it seems that Shinichi Onizuka has been attacked by a crazed fan! It looks like it might have been the just bleed guy! Luckily Shinichi Onizuka seems to be OK!
