Coming up we have a light heavyweight MMA rules bout between Daniel Grigoryan (ranked 16 p4p, 3 weight class) and Alex John Conor Burns (ranked 36 p4p, 8 weight class). Grigoryan comes to the cage accompanied by Ara Gevorgyan - Artsakh. Burns has chosen Body Head Bangerz feat. Lil' Boosie & Young Bleed - I Smoke, I Drank as his entrance music, which hasn't gone down very well with the crowd.
