25 UFC Fighters and Which Entrance Songs Best Suit Their Personality

0 of 25

    The UFC has always been about the fights in the cage but I think us fans would be kidding ourselves if we didn’t admit that we often look forward to the entrances of our favorite fighters almost as much as we do the fights themselves.

    Whether it’s calm and cool, rough and rambunctious, or heavy and determined; our favorite fighters each have their own theme song styles.

    Some fighters have music that they will be forever remembered for while others are still struggling to find that perfect mix of their own personality and mainstream appeal.

    This list of 25 UFC Fighters and Which Entrance Songs Best Suit Their Personality is a combination of some of the best current theme songs and some suggestions for the fighters who may not have figured it out quite yet.

    So sit back and relax as you prepare yourself to imagine some of the top UFC talent walking to the cage with these tunes blasting in the background!

Dominick Cruz—“It’s a Fight” by Three 6 Mafia

1 of 25

    Fighter—Dominick Cruz, UFC Bantamweight champion

    Suggested song—“It’s a Fight” by Three 6 Mafia

    Current song—“Remember My Name“ by Maino

    The first and only UFC Bantamweight champion, Dominick Cruz certainly brings some big time talent to the freshly created division. Cruz boasts a 17-1 career record with his only loss coming at 145-pounds to then-champion Urijah Faber.

    Though he only has six knockout victories in his career, Cruz is known for his polished punching and energetic movement. “It’s a Fight” goes right along with his style in the cage.

    We gon hit em wit da left, hit em wit da right 
    We gon hit em wit da left, hit em wit da right 
    It's a fight, it's a fight, head bust 'em, head bust 'em 
    It's a fight, it's a fight, head bust 'em, head bust 'em

Gray Maynard—“Till I Collapse” by Eminem

2 of 25

    Fighter—Gray Maynard, Lightweight

    Suggested song—“Till I Collapse” by Eminem

    Current song—“Lose My Mind” by Young Jeezy

    The No. 1 contender for the UFC Lightweight championship came up just shy in his effort to take the title from current champion Frankie Edgar. Maynard remains undefeated in his MMA career at 10-0-1 with wins over an assortment of the world’s top fighters at 155 pounds.

    While he currently uses another rap song, “Lose My Mind” by Young Jeezy; “Till I Collapse” by Eminem may be more appropriate for this hard-nosed fighter.

    Not only does this song have fitting lyrics, but it also has an excellent intro which can really help to make a powerful entrance.

    'Cause sometimes you feel tired,
    feel weak, and when you feel weak, you feel like you wanna just give up.
    But you gotta search within you, you gotta find that inner strength
    and just pull that sh-- out of you and get that motivation to not give up
    and not be a quitter, no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face and collapse.

Frank Mir—“Amazing” by Kanye West

3 of 25

    Fighter—Frank Mir, Heavyweight

    Current song—"Amazing” by Kanye West

    There aren’t many fighters who could pull off an entrance theme like “Amazing” by Kanye West, but it absolutely works for the former UFC Heavyweight champion, Frank Mir.

    Mir’s calm, confident walk to the ring is perfect for this obviously very cocky song. He has the skills to back up his confidence, as well. Mir has out-struck some of the best heavyweights the UFC has thrown at him and his submission skills are among the best of any heavyweight fighter in the sport’s history.

    If Mir can continue to improve his game, there’s no reason to believe that he won’t be contending for the UFC Heavyweight title again in no time.

    I'm a monster, I'm a killer
    I know I'm wrong, yeah
    I'm a problem that'll never ever be solved
    And no matter what you'll never take that from me
    My reign is as far as your eyes can see

Chael Sonnen—“Beat It” by Michael Jackson

4 of 25

    Fighter—Chael Sonnen, Middleweight

    Suggested song—“Beat It” by Michael Jackson

    Current song—“Too Much Fun” by Daryle Singletary

    Chael Sonnen is in the process of going through one of the toughest points of his career—both inside and outside The Octagon—but knowing this tremendously motivated middleweight, it’s only a matter of time before he “Beats It.”

    Sonnen’s current theme music, “Too Much Fun” by Daryle Singletary has been motivated many times as the worst theme music in the business. It’s so bad that I almost have to believe that it’s a joke. He’s a funny guy, so I think that’s a safe assumption.

    Perhaps another fun, but a bit more recognizable and appropriate song for Chael would be “Beat It” by the late, great Michael Jackson.

    You better run, you better do what you can
    Don't wanna see no blood, don't be a macho man
    You wanna be tough, better do what you can
    So beat it, but you wanna be bad

Jon Fitch—“God’s Gonna Cut You Down” by Johnny Cash

5 of 25

    Fighter—Jon Fitch, Welterweight

    Suggested song—“God’s Gonna Cut You Down” by Johnny Cash

    Current song—“Rusty Cage” by Johnny Cash

    American Kickboxing Academy’s Jon Fitch is widely considered one of the top welterweight fighters in the world, as he continues to fight towards his rematch with current UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre.

    Fitch is so good, in fact, that he would likely be the odds-on favorite to be the next champion if St. Pierre does decide to do what the rumors say he will and move to 185-pounds to fight Anderson Silva, dropping his title in the process.

    “Rusty Cage” by Johnny Cash is a cool song that does have some MMA connection just given the word, “cage.” Other than that, it doesn’t really apply.

    While “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” doesn’t necessarily have much MMA meaning itself, it is a more known song by Cash and has a bit more of that epic feel to it that you want in an entrance song.

    You can run on for a long time
    Run on for a long time
    Run on for a long time
    Sooner or later God'll cut you down
    Sooner or later God'll cut you down

Vitor Belfort—“Stronger” by Kanye West

6 of 25

    Fighter—Vitor Belfort, Middleweight

    Suggested song—“Stronger” by Kanye West

    Current song—“Bate Pesadão” by Pregador Luo

    Vitor Belfort has a chance to make history this weekend as he faces perhaps the world’s best pound-for-pound fighter, Anderson Silva, for the UFC Middleweight championship.

    Though Belfort is an underdog in the fight, he has been given a significantly better chance by odds-makers than have any of Silva’s recent challengers, including Chael Sonnen who nearly finished the 185-pound kingpin.

    The No. 1 contender for the UFC Middleweight champion is a remarkable story of dedication, pain, failure, and success.

    “Stronger” by Kanye West is a very fitting song for a man who has gone through so much in his lifetime and still come out on top.

    Just imagine the light show and crowd reaction that would go along with this song for Vitor if he decided to use it at UFC 126.

    Now that, that don't kill me
    Can only make me stronger
    I need you to hurry up now
    'cause I can't wait much longer
    I know I got to be right now
    'cause I can't get much wronger
    Man I've been waitin' all night now
    That's how long I've been on you

Roy Nelson—“Fat” by Weird Al Yankovic

7 of 25

    Fighter—Roy Nelson, Heavyweight

    Current song—“Fat” by Weird Al Yankovic

    The Ultimate Fighter Season 10 winner, Roy Nelson, has really elevated his game since coming to the UFC. In three UFC fights, he holds impressive knockout victories over two of the heavyweight division’s best up-and-comers, Stefan Struve and Brendan Schaub.

    Though Nelson lost his most recent fight to Junior Dos Santos, he was the first man to ever bring Dos Santos to a decision.

    Nelson’s physique—if you can call it that—is very memorable. Nelson barely makes the 265-pound weight limit of the heavyweight division and he carries around a belly that would normally only be found on an overweight 20-plus-year alcoholic.

    But he makes it work.

    Nelson is extremely agile for his size and has fun with his appearance as he enters the cage to “Fat” by Weird Al Yankovic. The song may not be overly appropriate for the serious nature of the task at hand but it certainly describes Nelson and his personality to a T.

    Because I'm fat, I'm fat, come on
    You know I'm fat, I'm fat, you know it
    You know I'm fat, I'm fat, come on you know
    Don't you call me pudgy, portly or stout
    Just now tell me once again who's fat

Mauricio “Shogun” Rua—“Remember the Name” by Fort Minor

8 of 25

    Fighter—Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, Light Heavyweight

    Suggested song—“Remember the Name” by Fort Minor

    Current song—“Sail” by Armin Van Buuren

    Considered by some to be the greatest Light Heavyweight in the history of the sport, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua is the impressive, reigning UFC Light Heavyweight champion.

    His impressive career includes multiple wins over Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Alistair Overeem as well as wins over Ricardo Arona, “Cyborg” Santos, Chuck Liddell, and most recently Lyoto Machida.

    “Shogun” currently uses a techno song called “Sail” as his entrance music which is all well and good, but it doesn’t exactly fit how we fans perceive him; nor is it particularly engaging.

    The suggestion of “Remember the Name” by Fort Minor is due to the fact that while casual fans may struggle to remember that his real name is Mauricio Rua, the nickname “Shogun” will go down in history along with this awesome fighter.

    This is ten percent luck, twenty percent skill
    Fifteen percent concentrated power of will
    Five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain
    And a hundred percent reason to remember the name!

Junior Dos Santos—“Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor

9 of 25

    Fighter—Junior Dos Santos, Heavyweight

    Suggested song—“Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor

    Current song—"Rocky" movie Theme Song

    Junior Dos Santos is undefeated in the UFC with five of his first six fights ending due to his unbelievable punching power. With wins over top contenders and legends like Roy Nelson, Mirko Cro Cop, Gabriel Gonzaga and Fabricio Werdum; it’s no wonder why the UFC is setting him up for an eventual title shot.

    Not only is the UFC looking to get him a title shot down the road, but Dos Santos is also the coach opposite Brock Lesnar on the next season of The Ultimate Fighter. Even though he is just 26 years old and has only 13 professional fights under his belt, Dos Santos’ skills are respected enough for him to be training the class of fighters who the UFC hopes will be their future.

    He currently uses the "Rocky" movie theme song as his entrance music which is awesome. The nostalgic feel to it is great and really helps bring the fans to their feet.

    The only suggestion I have is to mix this with another epic song that was used in Rocky III, “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor. Perhaps the horns of the Rocky music could start things off before the intro of “Eye of the Tiger” begins, like the video here has.

    It's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight
    Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
    And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
    And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger

Urijah Faber—“California Love” by 2Pac

10 of 25

    Fighter—Urijah Faber, Bantamweight

    Current song—“California Love” by 2Pac

    The former WEC Featherweight champion, Urijah Faber, may not be the top-ranked fighter at his weight class anymore, but he is still likely the most recognizable. Whether it’s his colorful personality or exotic choice of hairstyle, Faber grabs the attention of everyone in the room when he walks in.

    “The California Kid” currently has a very fitting song with “California Love” by 2Pac. Not only is the style of the song and the beat very appropriate for him, but Faber is very proud of his home state and represents it every time he fights.

    Don’t change a thing, Urijah. We look forward to your entrances.

    California...knows how to party
    California...knows how to party
    In the citaaay of L.A.
    In the citaaay of good ol' Watts
    In the citaaay, the city of Compton
    We keep it rockin! We keep it rockin!

Cain Velasquez—“Go to Sleep” by Eminem

11 of 25

    Fighter—Cain Velasquez, UFC Heavyweight champion

    Suggested song—“Go to Sleep” by Eminem

    Current song—“Los Mandados” by Vicente Fernandez

    The UFC Heavyweight Champion is an undefeated monster named Cain Velasquez. Though he only has nine professional fights, he has finished eight of them by way of knockout or TKO due to punches.

    Velasquez most recently shocked the world when he knocked out former champion Brock Lesnar and threw the 265-pound behemoth around the cage like a rag doll.

    “Los Mandados” is a tribute to his Mexican heritage but is not particularly exciting. I suggest “Go to Sleep” by Eminem as his new theme song, as it will encompass the intensity that Velasquez has, as well as power to knock anyone on the planet into unconsciousness.

    Me do this one all by my lonely, I don't need fifteen of my homies
    When I see you, I'm seeing you, me and you only
    We never met, but best believe you gon' know me
    When I'm this close, to see you exposed as phony

Georges St. Pierre—“Body Head Anthem” by Roy Jones Jr.

12 of 25

    Fighter—Georges St. Pierre, UFC Welterweight champion

    Suggested song—“Body Head Anthem” by Roy Jones Jr.

    Current song—"Ça Fait Mal (Remix)” by Mes Repères

    There may not be a better pound-for-pound fighter on the planet today than the UFC Welterweight champion, Georges St. Pierre. While his wrestling makes him almost impossible to control, St. Pierre’s overall game has really come full circle.

    His punishing striking was perhaps no more evident in his career than it was at UFC 124 when he systematically picked apart the No. 1 contender, Josh Koscheck, breaking his orbital bone in the first round.

    Though Koscheck finished the fight, St. Pierre’s dominance was once again proven over the 170-pound division.

    “Ça Fait Mal” is a good choice for music if everyone who’s watching is French-Canadian, but since most of us are English-speaking, I decided to pick a new song for St. Pierre.

    “Body Head Anthem” by Roy Jones Jr. is another rap song, which St. Pierre would like, but it has some fighting lyrics and an intense beat.

    We gone take it to the body
    We gone take it to the head
    We bust a b---- head
    We bust a b---- head
    We bust a b---- head

Forrest Griffin—“I Won’t Back Down” by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

13 of 25

    Fighter—Forrest Griffin, Light Heavyweight

    Suggested song—“I Won’t Back Down” by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

    Current song—“I’m Shipping Up to Boston” by Dropkick Murphys

    One of the beloved fighters in the world, Forrest Griffin embodies everything that Tom Petty was talking about in “Won’t Back Down.” No matter the competition, Griffin enters the fight with the same intensity that he had when he was trying to win The Ultimate Fighter.

    Forrest has used a number of different entrance songs since his UFC debut and “I’m Shipping Up to Boston” is certainly a fun one, but “I Won’t Back Down” just fits this underdog too well not to include it.

    Well I know what's right, I got just one life
    In a world that keeps on pushin’ me around
    But I'll stand my ground
    ...and I won't back down

Anderson Silva—“Black and Yellow” by Wiz Khalifa

14 of 25

    Fighter—Anderson Silva, UFC Middleweight champion

    Suggested song—“Black and Yellow” by Wiz Khalifa

    Current song—"Ain’t No Sunshine” by DMX

    Many consider Anderson Silva the top pound-for-pound fighter in the world—and for good reason. Silva has made fools out of almost every opponent he has faced in the UFC, both at 185-pounds and even when he has moved up to challenge himself at 205-pounds.

    For a guy to look that impressive in two weight classes that are 20 pounds apart is extremely impressive and something that cannot be overlooked in the pound-for-pound discussion.

    Looking back on it, it’s almost as if the only challenge Silva has even faced in the UFC was in his last fight against Chael Sonnen. Though Silva eventually came out on top, there appeared to be hope for his future opponents—at least for now.

    “Black and Yellow” by Wiz Khalifa is a confident, cocky, and fun song—all things that describe the UFC Middleweight champion. Of course, it also helps that Silva’s attire is usually black and yellow.

    Yeah ah ha
    you know what it is
    Black and yellow, black and yellow
    Black and yellow, black and yellow

Shane Carwin—“Bodies” by Drowning Pool

15 of 25

    Fighter—Shane Carwin, Heavyweight

    Current song—“Bodies” by Drowning Pool

    The 12-1 Shane Carwin may be in line for another shot at the UFC Heavyweight championship very soon.

    Though he was submitted by Brock Lesnar in his first fight, Carwin showed some serious power and was able to stagger Lesnar early in the bout before he, by his own admission, gassed out.

    Carwin was presumably very excited for the fight and he had never been out of the first round of any fight in his professional career. When the fight got to the second right, it was advantage Lesnar as he out-grappled the heavy-handed Carwin, eventually submitting him due with an arm triangle.

    There is plenty of reason to believe that this was a momentary setback for Carwin, though, as he will likely remain the betting favorite to beat almost anyone on the UFC heavyweight roster.

    The UFC matchmakers will likely give him a few fights before he earns another title shot, but if he’s anywhere near as motivated as he was before the loss to Lesnar, expect many more “Bodies” to be left in his way.

    Let the bodies hit the floor
    Let the bodies hit the floor
    Let the bodies hit the floor
    Let the bodies hit the floooooor!

Tito Ortiz—“Break Stuff” by Limp Bizkit

16 of 25

    Fighter—Tito Ortiz, Light Heavyweight

    Suggested song—“Mosh” by Eminem

    Current song—"Break Stuff” by Limp Bizkit

    The ever-controversial Tito Ortiz makes this list as he is one of the true innovators of memorable entrances, at least in the UFC.

    When Ortiz made his return to The Octagon after a 14-month layoff in April 2006; he also brought a new theme song. The song, called “Mosh” by Eminem, is definitely a great entrance song and certainly helps to set the mood for his fights.

    However, as great as that entrance music is, it is not his best.

    Prior to leaving, Ortiz used an awesome custom intro followed by “Break Stuff” by Limp Bizkit.

    Of course, this was in the days when the UFC was spending a ton of money on fighter entrances by creating elaborate stages and making use of pyrotechnics but I believe this music would still work today, even if the UFC doesn’t use those things.

    When Fred Durst yells, “Give me something to break!” and Ortiz walks down to the cage for his fight in this video, I still get chills.

    Give me somethin' to break
    Give me somethin' to break
    Just give me somethin' to break
    How bout your f---in' face?

Jon Jones—“All I Do Is Win” by DJ Khaled

17 of 25

    Fighter—Jon “Bones” Jones, Light Heavyweight

    Suggested song—“All I Do is Win” by DJ Khaled

    Current song—“Angry Johnny” by Poe

    If Jon Jones isn’t already considered a future light heavyweight champion, he is certainly getting to that point and could prove it beyond a doubt with a win this weekend over the undefeated Ryan Bader.

    The arrogant Jones has called out numerous fighters since his UFC debut while also making some lofty and cocky claims on his Twitter account.

    “All I Do is Win” fits Jones’ confident demeanor and would be a significantly more entertaining entrance than his current “Angry Johnny” theme.

    All I do is win, win, win, no matter what
    Got money on mind, can never get it off
    and every time I step up in the building
    everybody hands go up...
    and they stay there

Quinton "Rampage" Jackson—“Can’t Be Touched” by Roy Jones Jr.

18 of 25

    Fighter—Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Light Heavyweight

    Current song—Pride FC theme song

    Suggested song—“Can’t Be Touched” by Roy Jones Jr.

    Rampage Jackson may have the best look in the entire world of MMA when he walks to the cage. With a chain wrapped around his neck and a scowl on his face, the former UFC Light Heavyweight champion is loved by practically everyone.

    Jackson has defeated many of the world's top fighters and remains a constant threat in the light heavyweight division.

    Though he most recently used the PRIDE theme song for his fight against Lyoto Machida at UFC 123, “Can’t Be Touched” by Roy Jones Jr. is the best song he has used.

    It’s already among the best entrances in the business, so it’s hard to recommend anything different.

    Can't be touched
    Can't be stopped
    Can't be moved
    Can't be rocked
    Can't be shook
    We hot
    When will you n----- learn?

Brock Lesnar—“Five Minutes Alone” by Pantera

19 of 25

    Fighter—Brock Lesnar, Heavyweight

    Suggested song—“Five Minutes Alone” by Pantera

    Current song—“Enter Sandman” by Metallica

    The former UFC Heavyweight champion took a vicious beating at the hands of Cain Velasquez in his last fight but that in no way makes him a candidate to be a pushover in the cage going forward.

    Lesnar’s size, strength, and speed combination make him perhaps the most difficult fighter in the world for his opponents to train for and an absolute nightmare one they actually see him coming at them.

    Lesnar currently uses “Enter Sandman” by Metallica as his entrance music which is a great song. Unfortunately, his pro wrestling history connects him to another person who used that song as his entrance music, the professional wrestler known as The Sandman.

    Perhaps a better and even more appropriate song may be “Five Minutes Alone” by Pantera. This heavy song seems to fit Lesnar’s style of heavy music but the title of the song can be taken quite literally.

    When you step in the cage with Lesnar, you get five minutes (per round) alone. It usually doesn’t even take that long before his opponent is left helpless on the mat.

    5 minutes alone
    Just give me
    5 minutes alone, yeah!

B.J. Penn—“Crazy” by Gnarls Barkley

20 of 25

    Fighter—B.J. Penn, Lightweight / Welterweight

    Suggested song—“Crazy” by Gnarls Barkley

    Current song—“Hawaii '78” into “E Ala E” by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

    B.J. Penn is often considered the most decorated lightweight in the history of the sport, having held the UFC Lightweight title twice in his career.

    He has also been great at 170 pounds when he became one of only two men to ever hold UFC gold in two different weight classes by becoming the the UFC Welterweight champion.

    Penn lost his title to current champion Frankie Edgar and looked discouraged in the rematch, but his sudden, violent knockout of Matt Hughes may be the jump start that he needs to get back to competing at 170 pounds.

    Penn has used “Crazy” by Gnarls Barkley in the past with an intro to it but he has since gone to a full entrance of the calming but still very mood-setting music by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole. Perhaps going back to “Crazy” will get he and the fans a bit more pumped up before his fights.

    I remember when, I remember
    I remember when I lost my mind
    There was something so pleasant about that place
    Even your emotions have an echo in so much space

Wanderlei Silva—“Sandstorm” by Da Rude

21 of 25

    Fighter—Wanderlei Silva, Light Heavyweight

    Current song—“Sandstorm” by Da Rude

    Perhaps no entrance in MMA is more memorable and intriguing than that of legendary light heavyweight, Wanderlei Silva.

    “The Axe Murderer” has made a career out of destroying some of the world’s best fighters at numerous weight classes and will certainly go down as one of the greatest fighters of the past decade; and perhaps of all-time.

    The “Sandstorm” entrance is an enigma in it of itself. Of course, it’d help if the UFC would hire the announcer lady from PRIDE, who helped make every entrance just that much better.

    No lyrics for this one... Just turn up your speakers and enjoy.

Frankie Edgar—"The Champ Is Here” by Jadakiss

22 of 25

    Fighter—Frankie Edgar, UFC Lightweight champion

    Suggested song—“The Champ is Here” by Jadakiss

    Current song—"Kick in the Door" by Notorious B.I.G.

    “The Answer” has completely torn through the UFC Lightweight division in a way that almost no one could have expected.

    With wins over Sean Sherk, Jim Miller, Tyson Griffin, and back-to-back wins over the legendary B.J. Penn; Frankie Edgar has solidified his position atop the division.

    Though he lost a fight to Gray Maynard and recently fought to a draw with him in the rematch at UFC 125, there is very little doubt that Edgar is the top lightweight fighter in the world today.

    “The Champ is Here” is a literal interpretation of the fact that the champ has indeed arrived in the building.

    The champ is here
    The champ is here
    The champ is here
    The champ is here

Rashad Evans—“Point of No Return” by Immortal Technique

23 of 25

    Fighter—Rashad Evans, Light Heavyweight

    Current song—“Point of No Return” by Immortal Technique

    Rashad Evans wasn’t always the cocky fighter we see today but his confidence has grown as he gains experience in the sport.

    The former light light heavyweight champion has notched wins over some of the world’s best competition including Chuck Liddell, Thiago Silva, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Michael Bisping, and Forrest Griffin.

    He sports a wildly impressive 15-1-1 career record with his only blemishes coming in a loss to Lyoto Machida and a controversial draw with Tito Ortiz.

    Evans still has things to work on to become a better fighter but his entrance song isn’t one of them. “Point of No Return” is an excellent entrance song that lets you know that when you in the cage, there is no turning back. You’ve made your bed—and now you’re going to get knocked out in it.

    This is the point from which I could never return
    And if I back down now then forever I burn
    This is the point from which I could never retreat
    Cause If I turn back now there can never be peace
    This is the point from which I will die and succeed
    Living the struggle, I know I'm alive when I bleed
    From now on it can never be the same as before
    Cause the place I'm from doesn't exist anymore

José Aldo—“It’s My Time” by Fabolous

24 of 25

    Fighter—José Aldo, UFC Featherweight champion

    Suggested song—“It’s My Time” by Fabolous

    Current song—“Run This Town” by Rihanna and Jay Z

    One of the world’s top pound-for-pound fighters, José Aldo has completely taken over the newly created UFC Featherweight division.

    Aldo’s impressive 8-0 record in the WEC made him one of the most dominant fighters in the company’s short history as he scored wins over perennial top contender Cub Swanson as well as former WEC Featherweight champions Mike Brown and Urijah Faber.

    Aldo has not made his UFC debut yet and it may be a perfect time for a new theme song. “Run This Town Tonight” was good for a one-night stint, but “It’s My Time” by Fabolous is something that very much fits this exciting, young fighter.

    Go hard, today
    Can’t worry bout the past, ‘cuz that was yes-sterday
    I’ma put it on the line, ‘cuz it’s my time
    Hey hey hey heeyy

Matt Hughes—“Country Boy Can Survive” by Hank Williams Jr.

25 of 25

    Fighter—Matt Hughes, Welterweight

    Current song—“Country Boy Can Survive” by Hank Williams Jr.

    I wouldn’t be able to forgive myself if I didn’t include Matt Hughes’ entrance song, “Country Boy Can Survive” by Hank Williams Jr. at the top of this list.

    Country music isn’t exactly my cup of tea—in fact, I hate it—but even I have to admit that I get chills when the lights dim and this music hits.

    Hughes may be the most dominant Welterweight champion in UFC history and the UFC Hall of Famer will always be remembered for his amazing entrances.

    I live back in the woods, you see
    A woman and the kids, and the dogs and me
    I got a shotgun rifle and a 4-wheel drive
    And a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive
