Here are some walkout music suggestions for the Russian King of MMA.
Disclaimer: We understand that the mysterious Fedor is more likely to relax before a fight by listening to a choir of monks chanting than to bang his head to some old school AC/DC. This list is only a conversation starter...our little fantasy "intro" soundtrack for the Last Emperor.
Based on the predilection for his opponents to take a little unscheduled nap at just the wrong moment (for them). - listen
No explanation necessary here. If you think the great man is lethal in the cage, imagine Fedor armed to the teeth with special forces staples like a sub-machine gun, a double edged blade and a pocket full of grenades. - listen
"As I lay there gazing at the sky, my body's numb and my throat is dry."
A fair description of most of the Emperor's victims. The ultimate battle song. - listen
It's all about the Appetite For Destruction. From arguably the best rock album of the 1980's, "it's so easy" is also an apt description of why the Russian heavyweight awes MMA fans worldwide. He often makes it look so damn easy! - listen
We picked this one for obvious reasons. So many of Fedor's victims end up getting way more than they bargained for, often after they've been lulled to sleep by a false sense of safety. - listen
Purely for comedy, how great would this be?! Imagine the puzzled faces and smiles in the Prudential Center if the Last Emperor strolled out to this old-school Sinatra-esque crooner. What would Big Foot make of it? - listen
"5 to 1 baby, 1 in 5, no one in here gets out alive". Vegas odds currently have Antonio Silva at roughly +325... we think that's generous. It should be more like 5-1. - listen
Do we really need to explain it? Just ask the most recent victims: Tim Sylvia, Andre Arlovski and Brett Rogers. - listen
An ode to the great man's greatest asset... always believing he's going to win no matter how much trouble he gets into. We've seen it again and again. Backed up to the wall is where Fedor becomes the most dangerous man on the planet. - listen
"Ask not for whom the bell tolls"... it tolls for thee Big Foot!
Seriously, who's not psyched to see this tournament?!! Hope you enjoyed our song choices. Please chime in with your own. - listen
