Event: EPL 12 Finale     
Date:   Jul 21, 2017

Coming up we have a lightweight MMA rules bout between Axl Rose and Gauthier St. Georges. Rose comes to the cage accompanied by You Could Be Mine. St. Georges has chosen Jiu Jitsu as his entrance music, which hasn't gone down very well with the crowd. 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 Gauthier St. Georges was going to win. Let's see if he was right.
