Event: DARE: BATTLE OF LA     
Date:   Apr 25, 2018

Coming up we have a light heavyweight MMA rules bout between Krystian Soszynski (ranked 151 p4p, 22 weight class) and Frankie Zimmerman (ranked 2183 p4p, 302 weight class). Soszynski kept the crowd waiting but all that was forgotten when his ring entrance music started. The incomparable musical genius that is Sabaton - 40 : 1. 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 Frankie Zimmerman was going to win. Let's see if he was right.
