I have watched UFC since the first. This doesn't just apply to UFC but all MMA orgs. and fighters. I just seem to notice it more with UFC.
Why is it that alot of fighters seem to come out to shitty songs. Why no classics? Why not good 60's rock anthems?
Why is it that its all this hardcore music? I mean does Hendrix not pump the blood the same way lets say Slayer?
If the choice is up to the UFC or more importantly Dana White, then shame on them/him. If its the fighters well then I say shame on them.
Rock Ballads to me seem perfect for entrance music. I'd love to see someone come down blasting The Who, Van Halen, Black Sabbath, Alice N' Chains. Maybe I still am not watching enough MMA, but there just seems to be a lack of international music.
Take UFC 67, the last fight of the eve when Tyson Griffen came down to "Eye of the Tiger." Why don't more fighters take that approach. Matt Hughes-esc type entrances. I give credit to Pride because they seem to have much better entrance music. I think this can mainly be Dana's fault (Atleast for the UFC)
Just seems wierd to me that fighters don't pick more songs known.
My 12 fighter army is as follows:
Mirko "the man" Filipovic
Fedor and Aleks
Q. Rampage Jackson
