Main event

Coming up we have a heavyweight MMA rules bout between Jason Hightower (ranked 133 p4p, 203 weight class) and Bento Barboza (ranked 23 p4p, 32 weight class). Hightower's entrance music is The Power. A fine choice. Barboza has chosen Angel Of Death as his entrance music. 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?
