Fighter Themes

Fighter Themes

I appreciate when a fighter sticks with a theme. A particular walkout song or a particular look. I was thinking of Michael Bisping and his Song Two from Blur and was amazed that more fighters don't stick with a theme.

At the mid-point of Forrest Griffin's career he came out for several fights to Shipping Off to Boston from the Dropkick Murphy's and he had all the lights in the arena go green. It was very cool and made his entrance easily identifiable to him.

Various fighters have stuck with a song. But I would like a fighter to not only stick with a song, but a lighting concept as well. Can you imagine if the UFC would actually show more fighter entrances. It would be almost a throwback to Pride FC and would add to a fighter's mystique.
