Date:   Sep 30, 2017

Coming up we have a middleweight MMA rules bout between Russian Obama (ranked 11 p4p, 3 weight class) and Matt Quin (ranked 49 p4p, 9 weight class). Obama comes to the cage accompanied by 5 minutes Alone. Quin is bobbing his head along to his entrance song: Captain Jack - Iko Iko. 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.
