Coming up we have a bantamweight MMA rules bout between Vyrkyx Dall (ranked 532 p4p, 21 weight class) and Eliitti Paavo (ranked 642 p4p, 25 weight class). Chooooooooon! I think Dall might be my favorite fighter, now he's come out to The Worm. The crowd seem to be enjoying Paavo's choice of entrance music: Brother Firetribe - Winner Takes It All. These two fighters really are very evenly matched on the feet - it will be fascinating to see who can assert themselves in that aspect of the fight.

Date:   Jun 02, 2018

Coming up we have a middleweight MMA rules bout between Rauta Kansleri (ranked 136 p4p, 20 weight class) and Liam Browne (ranked 100 p4p, 14 weight class). Chooooooooon! I think Kansleri might be my favorite fighter, now he's come out to U.D.O. - Heart of Gold. 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 Liam Browne was going to win. Let's see if he was right.
