Fight Day isn’t off to the best start for UFC 185 main card competitor Matt “The Immortal” Brown. Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta penned a track with his eponymous solo outfit, Jasta, for the Ohio-based fighter’s walkout this evening, and is now saying that it has not been cleared. Jasta put out the following tweet this morning.
Don’t be bummed when UFC doesn’t allow Matt to use my song. Shit happens. Hopefully he wins & gets to use it one day! #PMA

If this is indeed the case, it would be the second time the UFC has prevented a song of Jasta’s from being used as walk-out music. In 2013, Jasta sponsored Chris Camozzi with both his Hatewear line of clothing and his band, Hatebreed, only to have the UFC cover-up the sponsor logos on Camozzi’s shorts and change his walk-out music at the last minute. This was reportedly due to concerns with the band’s name, which was taken from a Misfits song, despite the fact they have no links to any hate groups.
You can hear what was supposed to have been Matt Brown’s walkout music, along with “Honor Never Dies,” the song Camozzi was to have walked out to below.
