Event: Syn 553 - Restitution     
Date:   Nov 25, 2017

Coming up we have a lightweight MMA rules bout between Ozzy McKane (ranked 208 p4p, 28 weight class) and Don Juan Matus (ranked 239 p4p, 31 weight class). McKane comes to the cage accompanied by SAIL - AWOLNATION. Matus has chosen Crow Spirit as his entrance music, which hasn't gone down very well with the crowd. Both these guys have really solid chins. Will we see a standup war or will they both decide that a knockout is unlikely and try to win the fight elsewhere?
