Coming up we have a heavyweight MMA rules bout between Ike Ibeabuchi (ranked 1127 p4p, 119 weight class) and Samuel Morris (ranked 2200 p4p, 210 weight class). Morris has chosen AWOLNATION - Sail as his entrance music, which hasn't gone down very well with the crowd. 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?
