Event: Syn 526 - Xtreme     
Date:   May 20, 2017

Coming up we have a featherweight MMA rules bout between Abraham Donowitz and Don Juan Matus. Donowitz kept the crowd waiting but all that was forgotten when his ring entrance music started. The incomparable musical genius that is JEW FLOW. Matus has chosen Crow Spirit as his entrance music, which hasn't gone down very well with the crowd. Both these guys have really solid chins. Will we see a standup war or will they both decide that a knockout is unlikely and try to win the fight elsewhere?
