Coming up we have a welterweight MMA rules bout between Cornelius Barnaby (ranked 1121 p4p, 143 weight class) and Valerio Bartoli (ranked 2371 p4p, 269 weight class). Chooooooooon!

Modulate - Bass Alert kicks in, the lights come on and the crowd goes wild! What a showman! 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?
