Event: GAMMA#708 Goodman v Verama     
Date:   May 12, 2018

Coming up we have a middleweight MMA rules bout between Saul Goodman (ranked 3 p4p, 1 weight class) and Hector Verama (ranked 45 p4p, 8 weight class). Goodman's ring entrance music is that housewives' favourite, Baba O'riley. Verama has chosen Swing It Away as his entrance music, which hasn't gone down very well with the crowd. 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?

Event: GAMMA#702 Simmons v Hoyce     
Date:   Apr 14, 2018

Coming up we have a featherweight MMA rules bout between Gareth Keenan (ranked 20 p4p, 4 weight class) and Jiri Sayonara (ranked 64 p4p, 9 weight class). Keenan comes to the cage accompanied by Coming Home. Sayonara has chosen Edge Of The Blade as his entrance music, which hasn't gone down very well with the crowd. On his way into the cage it seems that Gareth Keenan has been attacked by a crazed fan! It looks like it might have been the just bleed guy! Luckily Gareth Keenan seems to be OK! I thought that lunatic was in prison!?
