Event: RISE 93 Oloishona v Granger     
Date:   Aug 31, 2019

Coming up we have a middleweight MMA rules bout between John Sullivan (ranked 3777 p4p, 378 weight class) and Tsukune Shiba (ranked 2410 p4p, 278 weight class). Sullivan's ring entrance music is that housewives' favourite, Luck of the Irish. Shiba is bobbing his head along to his entrance song: Fall Out Boy - The Phoenix. 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?

Coming up we have a middleweight MMA rules bout between Tsukune Shiba (ranked 742 p4p, 98 weight class) and Ananada Bunyasarn (ranked 419 p4p, 64 weight class). Chooooooooon! I think Shiba might be my favorite fighter, now he's come out to Fall Out Boy - The Phoenix. 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?
