Coming up we have a welterweight MMA rules bout between Hector Romero (ranked 7 p4p, 1 weight class) and Desmond Glass (ranked 72 p4p, 11 weight class). Romero kept the crowd waiting but all that was forgotten when his ring entrance music started. The incomparable musical genius that is Havana. Glass has chosen Across 110th Street by Bobby Womack as his entrance music. 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.

Coming up we have a welterweight MMA rules bout between Hector Romero (ranked 17 p4p, 3 weight class) and Ira Wright (ranked 18 p4p, 4 weight class). Romero comes into the arena with Havana blaring out of the sound system. Wright is bobbing his head along to his entrance song: Get Back. 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?
