Date:   Apr 14, 2018

Coming up we have a featherweight MMA rules bout between Gareth Keenan (ranked 20 p4p, 4 weight class) and Jiri Sayonara (ranked 64 p4p, 9 weight class). Keenan comes to the cage accompanied by Coming Home. Sayonara has chosen Edge Of The Blade as his entrance music, which hasn't gone down very well with the crowd. On his way into the cage it seems that Gareth Keenan has been attacked by a crazed fan! It looks like it might have been the just bleed guy! Luckily Gareth Keenan seems to be OK! I thought that lunatic was in prison!?
