Coming up we have a light heavyweight MMA rules bout between Don Diego and Chris Severn. Diego kept the crowd waiting but all that was forgotten when his ring entrance music started. The incomparable musical genius that is Tupac - I'm a Soldier. On his way into the cage it seems that Don Diego has been attacked by a crazed fan! It looks like it might have been the just bleed guy! Luckily Don Diego seems to be OK! I thought that lunatic was in prison!?
