Coming up we have a light heavyweight MMA rules bout between Tiago Renato and Hannes Haades. Renato's ring entrance music is that housewives' favourite, I Want My Tears Back. Haades has chosen Accept - Head Over Heels as his entrance music, which hasn't gone down very well with the crowd. 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.
