Date:   Sep 15, 2017

Coming up we have a welterweight MMA rules bout between Kim Jong Guk (ranked 8 p4p, 1 weight class) and Orlando Diggs (ranked 29 p4p, 6 weight class). Jong Guk comes into the arena with Jiu Jitsu blaring out of the sound system. Diggs has chosen KING of the FALL as his entrance music. 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?
