On his way into the cage it seems that Yuri Boyka has been attacked by a crazed fan! It looks like it might have been the just bleed guy! Luckily Yuri Boyka seems to be OK! I thought that lunatic was in prison!?

Coming up we have a light heavyweight MMA rules bout between Bryer McGuire (ranked 58 p4p, 10 weight class) and Mikael Brophy (ranked 327 p4p, 51 weight class). Chooooooooon! I think McGuire might be my favorite fighter, now he's come out to Nothing More - Go To War. Brophy has chosen Metallica - For Whom The Bell Tolls as his entrance music. 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.
