Coming up we have a heavyweight MMA rules bout between Mark Kerr (ranked 698 p4p, 81 weight class) and Rocco Marciano (ranked 729 p4p, 87 weight class).

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 Rocco Marciano was going to win. Let's see if he was right.
