Main event

Coming up we have a lightweight MMA rules bout between Kwame Redcliffe (ranked 307 p4p, 599 weight class) and Jakob Rolf (ranked 34 p4p, 82 weight class). Redcliffe's ring entrance music is that housewives' favourite, Close Your Eyes (And Count To F**k). Rolf is bouncing up and down as he enters the arena, backed by AVGN Theme Song. 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.
