Coming up we have a light heavyweight MMA rules bout between Boogie Rollins (ranked 1282 p4p, 204 weight class) and Corey Smith Jr (ranked 971 p4p, 152 weight class). Rollins's entrance music is Fish Fight- King Khan and BBQ Show. A fine choice. Smith Jr is bobbing his head along to his entrance song: You Will Know My Name. 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?
