Coming up we have a middleweight MMA rules bout between Flavio Lazzarini and Bon Aqua. Lazzarini's ring entrance music is that housewives' favourite, Goffredo Mameli - 'Il Canto degli Italiani'. Flavio Lazzarini had real problems making weight for this fight. After initially coming in at 188.0lbs, he had two hours to make the official fight weight. He made it but it will have taken a lot out of him to cut those extra few pounds. 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.

Event: NGF 129 Richards vs Brandao     
Date:   Apr 05, 2014

Coming up we have a middleweight MMA rules bout between Flavio Lazzarini and Joey Dixon. Lazzarini kept the crowd waiting but all that was forgotten when his ring entrance music started. The incomparable musical genius that is Goffredo Mameli - 'Il Canto degli Italiani'. The crowd seem to be enjoying Dixon's choice of entrance music: Dark Tranquillity - Iridium. Joey Dixon told me before the fight that he's been watching a lot of DVDs so let's see if that helps him in this one! I can't wait to find out!
