Event: Bushido 68: Okah vs. Umaga     
Date:   Sep 09, 2017

Coming up we have a heavyweight MMA rules bout between Ghazi Okah (ranked 160 p4p, 19 weight class) and Iosefa Umaga (ranked 304 p4p, 38 weight class). Okah comes into the arena with Rock Stone blaring out of the sound system. Umaga has chosen Ky-Mani Marley - Warriors as his entrance music. 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 Iosefa Umaga was going to win. Let's see if he was right.
