Coming up we have a middleweight MMA rules bout between Sergey Sklemin (ranked 292 p4p, 44 weight class) and Jorge Morueco (ranked 675 p4p, 90 weight class). Morueco is bobbing his head along to his entrance song: The Pretender. I'm sure you'll be fascinated to know that I was talking to some pointless Z list celebrity before the fight and he thought that Jorge Morueco was going to win. Let's see if he was right.
