UFC 228 Walkout Songs

This Saturday night, live from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX, UFC 228 will go down. The event is headlined by Tyron Woodley defending his UFC welterweight crown against Darren Till, with Nicco Montano defending her women’s flyweight title against Valentina Schevchenko. For a fighter to truly make that mark, however, they need the full package. Exciting fights certainly don’t hurts their chances of standing out in the crowded roster, but many fighters need that something more outside of the cage. Like a signature entrnace. That’s where I come in. As MMASucka.com’s resident musicologist, I can help. Putting my knowledge to work, I can help these wayward fighters find more suitable UFC 228 walkout songs. Songs that would help them make an impact with fans. I’m even sharing these suggestions with you, the fans. So, without further ado, here… We… Go!

Darren Till

What he last walked out to: “Sweet Caroline” – Neil Diamond

What he should walk out to next: “Don’t Care” – Obituary

I seldom recommend changing walkout songs for just one fight, but in the case of Darren Till, I’ll make an exception. After his seeming dismissal of his family in the run-up to UFC 228, it only seems appropriate that we walk out to Obituary’s “Don’t Care,” a mid-tempo stomper about doing exactly what one wants no matter what the costs or damage done. While the song is about the environment, it certainly applies to Till as well. You can hear it below.

Niko Price

What he last walked out to: “Victory” – Puff Daddy feat. Notorious B.I.G. and Busta Rhymes

What he should walk out to next: “Just Like This” – Limp Bizkit

This is Niko Price‘s second appearance on the Walkout Consultant due to his insistence on being “Badboy for Life.” This time, it’s for using Eddie Alvarez’s signature walkout, “Victory.” It’s actually another over-used song anywas, one I’ve chastised Hector Lombard for using this year as well. So, since Price’s musical tastes appear to be hopelessly mired in the late 1990s, then let’s go with something a little more angry white boy-appropriate for him. Something like the proper lead-off track to Limp Bizkit’s Significant Other album, “Just Like This.” You can hear it below.
