The UFC is coming to Argentina for the first time this week for UFC Fight Night 140! Headlining this weekend’s card at the Estadio Mary Terán de Weiss in Buenos Aires is a welterweight bout pitting Neil Magny against Santiago Ponzinibbio. As with many UFC events though, there are a lot of fighters who will need help selecting more memorable, on-brand entrances. As MMASucka.com’s resident musicologist, I can offer suggestions that will help fighters further stand out from the pack with their UFC Fight Night 140 walkout songs. I’m even posting them here for you, the discerning fans’, consideration. So, without further ado, here… We… Go!
What he last walked out to: “Could You Be Loved” – Bob Marley
What he should walk out to next: “Smile” – Jungle
I will never speak ill of the quality of Bob Marley’s music. It’s objectively good. Just maybe not best for MMA entrances, that’s all. And I get Nad “The Smiler” Narimani wanting to walkout to something upbeat and apart from the norm of brittle tough guy music. I respect that. So why not go with something explicitly on-brand for the Englishman? Something like “Smile” by Jungle would be quite appropriate, I think. You can hear it below.
What he last walked out to: “Destiny” – NF
What he should walk out to next: “The Phoenix” – Pyramid and Willy Wesley
I would think that it would be tempting fate a little too much if Austin “The Golden Boy” Arnett tried to walk out to NF’s “Destiny” again. A song where the rapper brags about all his results – positive, in the case of NF – being determined and pre-ordained by God is not something a man on a three fight losing skid should enter to. It seems a little too ironic. So, perhaps a song about rising from the ashes may be a bit more appropriate? The hard-hitting vintage-made-modern beats and aggressive rhymes of “The Phoenix” by Pyramid and Will Wesley may be just the ticket. Hear it below.
