Event: GAMMA#708 Goodman v Verama     
Date:   May 12, 2018

Coming up we have a middleweight MMA rules bout between Saul Goodman (ranked 3 p4p, 1 weight class) and Hector Verama (ranked 45 p4p, 8 weight class). Goodman's ring entrance music is that housewives' favourite, Baba O'riley. Verama has chosen Swing It Away 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?
