Coming up we have a middleweight kickboxing rules bout between Dwan Diego (ranked 17514 p4p, 707 weight class) and James Delaney (ranked 2327 p4p, 285 weight class). Chooooooooon! I think Diego might be my favorite fighter, now he's come out to Jiu Jitsu. Delaney has chosen Dark Strings 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.

Event: EFFA 168     
Date:   Jul 02, 2016

Coming up we have a middleweight kickboxing rules bout between Dwan Diego and Oliver Buddington. Diego's ring entrance music is that housewives' favourite, Jiu Jitsu. Buddington has chosen Night gown - Pillow fight! 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?
