Coming up we have a lightweight MMA rules bout between Teke Bamalog (ranked 931 p4p, 112 weight class) and Rasul Mirzaev (ranked 1118 p4p, 132 weight class). Bamalog's entrance music is Stubborn Robot Original Nuttah. A fine choice. Mirzaev has chosen Killshot - Eminem 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 Rasul Mirzaev was going to win. Let's see if he was right.
