Date:   Oct 21, 2017

Coming up we have a middleweight MMA rules bout between Russian Obama (ranked 8 p4p, 2 weight class) and Saul Goodman (ranked 26 p4p, 3 weight class). Obama kept the crowd waiting but all that was forgotten when his ring entrance music started. The incomparable musical genius that is 5 minutes Alone. Goodman comes into a darkened arena with his song building. Baba O'riley kicks in, the lights come on and the crowd goes wild! What a showman! Saul Goodman told me before the fight that he's been watching a lot of DVDs so let's see if that helps him in this one! I can't wait to find out!

Coming up we have a middleweight MMA rules bout between Achab Denis and Saul Goodman. Chooooooooon! I think Denis might be my favorite fighter, now he's come out to Can't be touched . The crowd seem to be enjoying Goodman's choice of entrance music: Baba O'riley. 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.
