These Fighters Had The Best Walkout Songs At UFC 281

The bonuses for UFC 281 for FOTN (Fight of the Night) and POTN (Performance of the Night) have all been awarded accordingly and two new champions were crowned. However there are some of us who passionately believe that the choice of walkout music a fighter uses to make their entrance to the cage deserves its own win category,

Given that a good walkout song has the power to hype up the crowd, inspire good fighter performances, and even influence the event’s beverage sales, a bonus category for a proper walkout makes sense.

A good walkout song deserves to be rewarded-or at the very least, acknowledged. With that being said, here are our staff’s picks for the fighters who had the best walkout songs for UFC 281

1. Michael Chandler "The Search" by NF

Win or lose, Michael Chandler always brings the fight and has quickly become a UFC fan favorite for his explosive starts and forward-pressure pace. Chandler has been on a two-fight losing streak since joining the UFC but that doesn’t matter. His fights are so intense, and explosive back-and-forth action that the loss is hardly seen as anything put pure heart. Michael Chandler has found his place among the top 5 in the UFC Men’s Lightweight divisions but he is still searching for that title run and champ status that he’s searching for. Walking out to The Search by NF seems fitting on many levels.

2 Dustin Poirier, "The Boss" by James Brown

It’s almost guaranteed that if Dustin Poirier fights, there will be blood, knockouts, or a submission. Dustin is NOT a point fighter who goes to decision. He’s a kill-or-be-killed guy and that’s why whenever James Brown’s “The Boss” begins to blare at a UFC event, you know there’s about to be blood, chaos, and excitment and all because Dustin has indeed,  paid the cost to be the Boss.

3. Michael Trizano: “Wild Side” by Motley Crue

This was a wild song choice for Michael Trizano to walk out to and proved to be the right choice for his wicked domination over his opponent that ended in a first-round knockout. Welcome to the wild side of MMA served up with a classic 80’s Crue banger to go along with it.

Buffalo Nichols Meet Me at the Bottom

Check Out Buffalo Nichols New Soulful Blues And Upbeat Folk Double Singles, "Meet Me In The Bottom" / "Friends".

Buffalo Nichols is back with a new double single, "Meet Me in The Bottom/Friends." Produced by Kyp Malone, the two songs showcase his incredible range as an artist. With full-band instrumentation, these tracks are sure to get your feet moving. Whether you're in the mood for some soulful blues or upbeat folk, there's something for everyone on this release.

"Friends" and "Meet Me In The Bottom" are two very different songs. "Friends" is a plea for understanding from a highly anxious and isolated person, while "Meet Me In Bottom" is a rollicking, riotous song that howls to a close. "Bottom" is a reworking of a traditional song that Nichols describes as "a classic blues song, reimagined as an action movie." Both songs are available now via Fat Possum.

Listen to Buffalo Nichols if you like: Amethyst Kiyah, Cederic Burnside, or Sun House.

Dax Depression

Dax's New Song, "Depression," Sheds Light On The Realities Of His Mental Health

Dax is known for his honest and open lyrics, and his latest song "Depression" is no different.

Dax took to social media to confess something very personal to his fans and followers. He admitted that he struggles with depression and that it's easier to put on a fake smile and act like everything is okay, rather than having to explain what you're really feeling.

This resonated deeply with a lot of people, as depression is something that so many struggle with in silence. Dax has always been very open and honest with his fans, sharing his own struggles in hopes of helping others feel less alone. 

His unique hybrid brand of hip-hop connects with his audience on a deep level, driving conversations on topics that are rarely if ever addressed amongst mainstream hip-hop artists, like spiritual warfare.

His singles "Depression" and "Dear Alcohol" are examples of this, are certified GOLD by the RIAA, and have amassed over 100 million streams collectively. He's established himself as one of the biggest independent hip-hop artists on the scene right now, with many of his music videos going viral.

His breakout single "Dear Alcohol" which also documented his struggle with depression, has 100 million streams to date and landed him on numerous Billboard charts, including Viral 50 (US + Global), Hot Country Songs, and Emerging Artists. His music occupies a space between hip-hop, pop, and even new country, appealing to fans across multiple genres.

 Check out Dax's new song, “Depression” and give it a thumbs up if it moves you as it did us.

Check out Marcus King's Funky Afrobeat-Inspired Cover Of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy"

 

Grammy award-winning Blues-Rock guitarist Marcus King and his band recorded a couple of tracks for the Spotify Singles series last year at the renowned Electric Lady studio in New York City. For their cover of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy," they took inspiration from Afrobeat, and gave their own spin to Marcus' original song "It's Too Late."

When asked about his experience recording at Electric Lady Studios, King stated that it was "like a religious experience" for him and the band. They were greeted at the door by their engineer, William Garrett, and instantly felt at home. The downstairs neighbors complained about the noise from the guitar amplifiers in the bathroom, but King didn't care - it was a dream come true.

The popular duo known as Gnarls Barkley, consisting of CeeLo Green and Danger Mouse, released their debut single "Crazy" in 2006. The song quickly became a worldwide hit, reaching the number two spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States. Marcus King Band is known for performing a soulful cover of "Crazy" live in concert.

Listen to Marcus King if you like: Buddy Guy, The Black Keys, James Brown, or Stevie Ray Vaughn.

Hasbulla Makes His First Official Walkout At UFC 280

Hasbulla UFC walkout

Hasbulla Makes His Official UFC Walkout Debut At UFC 280

Hasbulla Magomedov has become one of the most talked about names in combat sports in recent months.

The 19-year-old 3ft dwarf and internet sensation first came to prominence after appearing in a series of viral videos where he was being restrained from attacking another 3ft Russian teenager with a similar form of dwarfism as his. Now, he finds himself rubbing shoulders with some of the biggest names in both the UFC and beyond.

Magomedov’s story is an inspiring one, and his talent inside the Octagon is undeniable. In fact, he was even able to earn himself a contract with the promotion, after drawing attention from UFC president Dana White in the process.

As his star continues to rise, it’s clear that the UFC sees a lot of potential in what he can bring to the table.

Whether it’s mixing it up with Khabib Nurmagomedov or Islam Makhachev, or even giving UFC featherweight king Alexander Volkanovski a burger to the face during a cooking video, he’s always making headlines.

There are definitely critics who aren’t big fans of his broadcasting features, but as long as he keeps getting attention, the UFC will keep him around.

Watch Video: Hasbulla Makes His UFC Debut Walkout 

As he prepares to make his official walk to cage-side, Hasbulla is shadowboxing and taking in the moment in front of an empty Etihad stadium. He looks every bit ready for his big debut, with a team supporting him and a walkout song playing. It’s clear that he’s destined to play a big role on their social media platforms or, at the very least, be featured alongside some of the company’s best talent. He was there to witness UFC 280 and to support Isalm at a sold-out crowd in attendance in Abu Dhabi, where UFC 280 took place.

Will Hasbulla fight for the UFC?

Some people argue that it would be foolish for the UFC not to take advantage of signing Hasbulla and having him fight in the promotion. After all, he has already taken part in a string of skits and many people are interested in seeing what he can do. Others, however, worry that his involvement could tarnish the integrity of the sport. Either way, you can be certain that this will be one of many times you’re going to be seeing his face at UFC events.
