Coming up we have a lightweight MMA rules bout between Lamont Hawkins and Antonio Camatta. Hawkins kept the crowd waiting but all that was forgotten when his ring entrance music started.

Will we see a standup war or will they both decide that a knockout is unlikely and try to win the fight elsewhere?
