Coming up we have a heavyweight MMA rules bout between Quetzal Montezuma (ranked 53 p4p, 6 weight class) and Pena Pulkkinen (ranked 72 p4p, 12 weight class). Montezuma kept the crowd waiting but all that was forgotten when his ring entrance music started. The incomparable musical genius that is The Mayan Predator. 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?

Event: GAMMA#745 DeNeville v Benny     
Date:   Dec 01, 2018

Coming up we have a welterweight MMA rules bout between Lao Shin (ranked 146 p4p, 21 weight class) and Project Doom (ranked 72 p4p, 10 weight class). Shin's ring entrance music is that housewives' favourite, Shaolin Chamber of Death. Doom is bobbing his head along to his entrance song: Battle Beast - Touch in the Night. 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.

Coming up we have a welterweight MMA rules bout between Garegin Balayan (ranked 209 p4p, 36 weight class) and Bang Pitung (ranked 810 p4p, 109 weight class). Balayan comes to the cage accompanied by Troika. Pitung has chosen Madball - Born Strong as his entrance music. On his way into the cage it seems that Garegin Balayan has been attacked by a crazed fan! It looks like it might have been the just bleed guy! Luckily Garegin Balayan seems to be OK! I thought that lunatic was in prison!?
