These Fighters Had The Best Walkout Songs Of UFC Columbus

The bonuses for UFC Columbus (UFC on ESPN 33) have all been decided upon and awarded accordingly however there are some of us who passionately believe that the choice of walkout music a fighter uses to level up with or entertain the masses with, deserves its own bonus category, or at the very least more media attention. After all, a walkout song has the power to set the tone for the evening and even influence the evening’s events (alcohol sales included). With that being said, it turns out that, ironically, the fighters who lost their bouts ended up being the winners when it comes t to having the best walkout songs. Here are our staff’s picks for the top 3 fighters who had the best walkout songs for UFC Columbus (UFC on ESPN 33).

1. Chris Daukaus, "Highway Tune" by Greta Van Fleet

Rising heavy-weight contender, Chris Daukaus may have suffered another knockout blow, but he’s still a rockstar when it comes to his choice of walkout songs. It’s nearly impossible to not get pumped up by “Highway Tune” by Greta Van Fleet, who stormed the world of rock in 2018 when they hit the scene with their crunchy riffs and notable comparisons to Robert Plant’s signature style vocals.

"We're stopping on the highway girl 'cause I want to burn my gas, there's one girl that I know I'm never gonna pass..."

— Greta Van Fleet, "Highway Tune"

2. David Dvorak, "Too Old To Die Young" by Brother Dege

David Dvorak may have not won the fight but his choice of walkout music was epic. He walked out to the foot-stompin’- low down-dirty blues diddy, “Too Old To Die,” by Brother Dege from Quentin Tarantino’s DJANGO UNCHAINED official motion picture soundtrack. Despite his loss, Dvorak didn’t just put his world-class mixed martial arts on display, but also his renowned taste in music. If you don’t know about Brother Dege, now you know.

"Too old to die young now, above or below the ground, Yes, too old to die young now, still the good Lord might lay me down"

— Brother Dege, "Too Young To Die Young"

3. Jennifer Maia, "TNT" by ACDC

Jennifer Maia has made a name for herself for her undeniable world-class jiu-jitsu skills and although she may not have been as explosive in her recent bout against Manon Fiorot at UFC Columbus, we can all agree that her choice of walkout music was.

"Ain't got no gun, ain't got no knife, Don't you start no fight 'cause I'm T.N.T. I'm dynamite, T.N.T. and I'll win the fight, T.N.T. I'm a power load, T.N.T. watch me explode!"

— AC/DC, "TNT"
