Event: NSC 50: Maximus vs Anstey     
Date:   Aug 27, 2019

Coming up we have a lightweight MMA rules bout between Carney Duffy (ranked 2116 p4p, 247 weight class) and Kostya Tszyu (ranked 1713 p4p, 207 weight class). Duffy kept the crowd waiting but all that was forgotten when his ring entrance music started. The incomparable musical genius that is Brawl - Bloody spit. Tszyu is bouncing up and down as he enters the arena, backed by Till the End of Time. 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?
