Coming up we have a lightweight MMA rules bout between Clark Kent (ranked 354 p4p, 47 weight class) and Sala Barbo (ranked 148 p4p, 17 weight class). Kent's ring entrance music is that housewives' favourite, Save Me - Remy Zero (Smallville Theme). Barbo is bobbing his head along to his entrance song: Nissim. Sala Barbo told me before the fight that he's been watching a lot of DVDs so let's see if that helps him in this one! I can't wait to find out!

Coming up we have a featherweight MMA rules bout between Blake Green (ranked 3 p4p, 1 weight class) and Diagoro Yabaisama (ranked 36 p4p, 5 weight class). Green kept the crowd waiting but all that was forgotten when his ring entrance music started. The incomparable musical genius that is Sugar Rush. Yabaisama has chosen Liquid Swords as his entrance music. 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 Diagoro Yabaisama was going to win. Let's see if he was right.
