UFC Fight Night 125 Walkout Songs
UFC Fight Night 125 is upon us this week! The card, topped by a middleweight bout between Lyoto Machida and Eryk Anders, will be live from the Guilherme Peraense (Mangueirinho) Arena in Belem, Para, Brazil. All over the card, people are needing help with their UFC Fight Night 125 walkout songs. With uniforms now de rigeur for UFC athletes, one of the few ways they have left to stand outas individuals is with walkout music. Some have had great walkouts in the past, but musical schizophrenia has led them away from it. Others just need a boost. That’s why I’m here. As MMASucka.com‘s resident musicologist, I’m here to offer suggestions that would help these fighters become more memorable as a brand. I’m even doing it publicly, for your entertainment. So, without further ado, here… We… Go!
What he last walked out to: “Game of Thrones theme” – Ramin Djawadi
What he should walk out to next: “Bleed it Out” – Linkin Park
While it was truly epic when Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida walked out to the Game of Thrones theme, it still wasn’t the same. Machida made his name walking out to Linkin Park’s “Bleed it Out,” and honestly, that’s what he should stay walking out to until he retires. It’s his song, and no other fighter should make their way to the cage to it. You can listen to it below.
Douglas Silva de Andrade
What he last walked out to: “Conquistando o Impossavel” – Jamily
What he should walk out to next: “Back to the Primitive” – Soulfly
Douglas “D’Silva” Silva de Andrade is a knockout artist. There is no other way to describe it when 19 of his 24 wins have come from some form of stoppage due to strikes. This is why the sedate balladry of Jamily is so incongruous a walkout for him. It doesn’t have power to it, in the way that Gian Villante walking out to “Downeaster Alexa” or Yoshihiro Akiyama entering to “Nessun Dorma” does. A man with the amount of finishes as “D’Silva” needs to make his way to the cage to something with some heft to it. Keeping that in mind, Soulfly’s “Back to the Primitive” may just be the song Silva de Andrade needs to stand out, with its traditional berimbau intro adding an indigenous Brazilian flair that other fighters from his homeland overlook. Listen to it below.
