What Song Did Calvin Kattar Walkout To At UFC Fight Night Austin?

Rate the music. Hot or not?

Calvin Kattar put on an incredible performance even though he lost a razor-close split decision in his recent fight against Josh Emmet at UFC Fight Night Austin. Kattar has been generating a ton of interest from MMA fans since his infamous loss against Max Holloway in Abu Dhabi, where he lost but gained the respect of fight fans for managing to stay on his feet in an epic war against Max Holloway, where he took over 700 blows from him during the fight.

His endurance, toughness, and refusal to quit sparked a viral interest in the rising new star in the already super-stacked featherweight division. His entrance song generated lots of interest as well. People wanted to know what walkout song played a part in emotionally preparing him for taking an onslaught of violence and remaining standing, Kattar walked out to ‘The House of the Rising Sun’ by The Animals.

The song was released in the ’60s and was rumored to have been written about either a New Orleans brothel that was named after its occupant Madame Marianne LeSoleil Levant (which means “rising sun” in French) or about a women’s prison in New Orleans that had it entrance gate adorned with rising sun artwork.

Either way, we know that the song is personal to Kattar because it has become his signature walkout song in the UFC. Given its background and the song’s lyrics, it doesn’t stand out as the kind of a hype song to motivate a fighter but obviously to each their own, and Kattar must have his reasons for making it his signature walkout song. Let us know if you think this is a good walkout song or if Calvin should walk out to a new song.
