Undercard bout

Coming up we have a light heavyweight MMA rules bout between Bison Jury (ranked 3865 p4p, 22920 weight class) and Krzysztof Kozlow (ranked 471 p4p, 641 weight class). Jury's ring entrance music is that housewives' favourite, DMX's Intro - It's Dark and Hell is Hot. 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?
