Coming up we have a middleweight MMA rules bout between Jeremy Voda and Risto Korpisuo. Chooooooooon! I think Voda might be my favorite fighter, now he's come out to Lamb of God - Walk With Me In Hell. Korpisuo has chosen Eläkeläiset - Humpparaakki as his entrance music, which hasn't gone down very well with the crowd. 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.
